Ninth-plate, c1850 post mortem daguerreotype. Hard to find extreme close-up of a man... I suspect he was probably photographed in his coffin, but if any of the coffin is visible underneath the mat you would have to open the original, intact seals to find out.

Dag is housed in its original case, which has separated covers.

Some surface tarnish, otherwise in excellent antique condition, sealed, as stated above.
