Lot 15    

Daguerreotype of Daniel Spencer, Revolutionary War Veteran,
2003 Americana May 8-9.
quarter plate size in full leather case, with mat stamped "Carden&Co. 293 B.way." A fine image of this aged (and toothless) veteran, accompanied by period manuscript identification and supplemental historical research. Spencer (1759-1854) served as a private in a Connecticut company of Light Dragoons serving under Col. Elisha Sheldon. On July 4, 1853 he was the honored guest of New York City, and dined with the veterans of 1812. Almost certainly this was the occasion for this daguerreotype. Rarely did Rev War vets survive into the daguerreian era.
