A 6th plate measures 3.25" x 2.75" How handsome is he? Just imagine what he would look like if someone qualified would clean the glass, the dust off the dag and retaped it. Stunning! The spider mold on his lapel would remain, a minor issue. The contrast & clarity was too much to handle for my humble scanner. This fine daguerreotype far exceeds what you see here. Cannot be compared. Holding it at various angles changes the hues from reddish to blue. A beautiful halo hugs the mat that also couldn't be reproduced when scanned. There are a few gentle buff marks on the upper part, only visible when the plate is tilted. The gorgeous hunk is formally attired, no doubt it was courting time! He was a man of means to judge by his choice of studio where Scovill plates were used as well as fine leather cases. According to Berg p. 326 (4-30) this case is referred to as "The Schooner 1", it features the name "Susan" in the ship's pennant. Today's list price of just the case is $75. It is perfect with the original hinge intact. A neat little package!
