THAT?S A SCAR! And those certainly were freckles all over the lad?s face crowned by a thick thatch of red hair I would wager. I just opened the complete thermoplastic case and even in the best viewing light, most of those teeny white specks aren?t really visible on the surface of an otherwise very strong daguerreotype. The operator used a heavy hand coloring his patron?s cheeks. That was a very snazzy checkered bowtie the fellow wore for his resealed sixth plate that has excellent contrast, a broad range of tones and deep reflected depth. The design on the case on both sides was #138 in Krainik, ?The Farmer?s Dream?! The hinges are tight and overall the box is in very good condition.
