“PICTURE . . . Of John Dolbeare East Haddam CT Taken 18,60!” If you view the second scan the piece of paper with this information will be revealed. I know that you have already admired the man done on his retaped sixth plate. What a really spiffy gentleman. His features were were almost painterly in a high quality kind of way. Although that applied redness on his broad mouth was a bit comical, Mr. Dolbeare was obviously taken late in the daguerreian era and his maker still knew how to produce excellence on silver. One brown circle is clearly present in the neutral cloth drop next to his head. Mat scrapes live inside the brass oval shape. There are mold spiders and an odd line (not a scratch) on the right near his shoulder. John?s complete leather case was a late knock-off of a book style example.
