1/4 1850s daguerreotype of a serene looking bearded man, head resting on a lace covered pillow. Housed in half of a mourning themed, hard thermoplastic case. Nice image.. looks better than my photo which came out fuzzy for some reason. Unsealed with several short and pretty light mat abrasions near the tarnish ring mostly along the right mat edge, and a spot of green corrosion with associated haze or tarnish. The white spot/lines on his collar is a reflection on the outside of the glass that I didn't notice and can be wiped right off - there are no swipes or damage other than what I have mentioned. Boxed & insured PRIORITY MAIL.
