Sixth Plate Daguerreotype of Lt. George P. Turner, USMC & CSMC,

Provenance:Estate of Mrs. George D. Caldwell, Louisville, Ky.

Condition:The Turner dag has a swipe in the lower left corner, several insignificant spots, and minor tarnish around the mat, VG overall with sharp clarity-Marine anchor buttons are visible. No seals remain (due to being removed for copying) but the dag has never been cleaned in our opinion. Behind the image in the case are old copy instructions on a printed photographer's form with "Mrs. Turner's" name indicating that at least one copy of the original dag was made in the 1870's. The other two images EXC, all in original composition cases.

Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000
Price Realized Including Buyer's Premium
