PAIR BY CHURCHILL. It’s not every day you find a dag with “Churchill” scratched on the plate, but here are two sixth plates! This father and son have equally stern faces. They seemingly went to be daguerreotyped the same day. Each dag is in the same whole case and has the same mat and protector. The boy?s pose is great. He has light tinting on his face and is in nice condition. His father?s dag has a few small green spots at the upper right and a larger one at the right edge. There is some tarnish on the column in his dag. The book the father is holding is edged in gold. His cheeks are lightly tinted too.
