FROM THE SOUTH! Etched in the plate was: “66 . . . . . . Rio – Janeiro”. Casey and I have been unable to decipher the word after the number but certainly it must have been the street location where the daguerreian worked his magic. This full of facial hair fellow is one of the most soulful men I have owned in forever. Whilst he isn’t much on fashion, the awesome presentation and facial tinting were superbly crafted. He is a retaped sixth plate kept in a complete leather case. Teeny mat marks are in the oval rim of patina. Otherwise, the brilliant highly reflective silver should be considered pristine. Need I say how wicked rare and desirable men from the “deep south” meaning Brazil are these days?
