WELL THEN . . . Why did the very handsome, well groomed boy have hands that belonged, in appearance at least, to a much older male? As it was with many children who were daguerreotyped and I suspect he was one of them, by the age of 8 years they were already familiar with manual labor. This is actually a spectacular redone sixth plate. Two teeny silver digs are on the right side of his handsome face. Weird re-tarnish is around him. The illumination pinpointed the lad and the depth is holographic! Only the bottom of a leather case is present.
