INFO WITH THE DAG. A former owner named the couple but there was no other indication of their identities so I will leave it to the next collector of the loving pair to figure out their history. His inscriptions are in the bottom of their separated leather case on green paper kept in an archival sleeve. Here is the link that has the same folks in identified dags: http://www.americanantiquarian.org/daguerreotypes-inventory
Scroll down to Seth Fobes, born 1780 and died 1867. His wife Rachel was born in the same year and died three years earlier. To my eyes these people looked quite sad. There are some specks on the silver and quite a bit of tarnish around the pair. The depth on their sixth plate is actually holographic!
