02507 Portrait by New Yorker Alexander
Beckers
  1/6 plate daguerreotype portrait
of a gentleman with red tinted lips and what
I believe to be a pencil and notebook in his
coat pocket.  Mr. Beckers held several
patents relating to daguerreotype and
stereoscope equipment. A nice image with a
green spot over the man's shoulder in the
blank field and some minor imperfections.
Contained in a well worn leather case with
repaired hinge.    $175
