12534 Midshipman - 1/9 plate daguerreotype
housed in a full leather case depicts a young naval
officer who positions his hand so that it clutches
to the lapel of his coat.  The image dates to the
late 1850’s and is sharp and clear.  Naval
daguerreotypes are not common and this one is
exceptional, including original seals.  $1,000
