So did I! That's what I captioned it with on my dating photos page for 1840-1860 - Dating Photos 1840s-1860Originally Posted By: Zedis it a relative?
Sadly I don't have any daguerreotypes of relatives. I have no idea who it is. I bought him on ebay (where else?). The oldest photos of relatives I have only go back to the 1860s and are collodion prints on paper.

I bubble this thread up today because I opened Daniel Pinchbeck's 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl last night and discovered this line: "For a few years, I flourished in the hectic hothouse and pinchbeck glitter of the "roaring eighties."
ol' Daniel must have really gloried in that usage.
