Captain Wilkes' image is a 1/4 plate in very good condition. I see tarnish spots, but no damage.The underside of the glass, which is very thick, is. Dirty, but can be cleaned. Looks like the original seals are in place but very fragile. Covers are separated along the spine. Wilkes & Jr's dag is also. Couple of spots, but no obvious damage. Seals are inside the case but not intact. The item "1/4 Daguerreotype Captain Samuel Wilkes Confederate Civil War Soldier KIA + WIFE" is in sale since Friday, November 29, 2019.
