Thumbs up


Fascinating sixth plate daguerreotype of a handsomely rugged young gentleman giving the thumbs-up gesture.  Quite honestly this is the first time we have seen someone signaling their seal of approval in this fashion!  The image is in very good plus condition with nice tones and contrast.  There is a band of perimeter tarnish and some scattered spots with one pinprick size green spot to the left of his hair.  The image has been resealed with a new glass and is housed in half of a leather case.  A most unusual pose that you may never see again!
