I’ll say first off that the little white specks don’t show up as much in person as in my scan, but they are in on the plate. The original mat was covering the window so I used a wider one when resealing. The original also left a few little scratches, but nothing major. There are some green spots as well; the largest is at the top. As you can see, there are some other scattered marks as well. All that said… the quarter plate image is really quite lovely. The guy confidently smokes his cigar, his hat at an angle, a slight tint on his face. His watch chain is tinted gold. He’s certainly a character! It’s a wonder he kept his eyebrows that arched for the entire exposure, don’t you think? The dag comes in a whole case.
