Summary:
Daguerreotype has brass mat stamped "Plumbe" but no brass preserver or seal; in papier mache case, with daguerreotype placed upside down so that case opens backwards. As the original daguerreotype packaging apparently has been removed, there is no guarantee that Plumbe is the photographer, as the stamped mat might have been combined with a non-Plumbe image.
