So many of you must have seen this in the news as my blog got lots of hits from Google searches looking for details on this story. It was as good day for Dags I would say. Just as the numbers of people getting into making wet colldodion images is on a sharp rise, the number of those working with daguerreotype making is also increasing. I find it great that the sale of a vintage dag made national news, although I am sure it was just because of the sale price.
The image above was sold at auction to an anonomus bidder for $62,500. A great price given the economic state of things wouldnt you say? The Image above has been linked to from CNN and the full story as they reported it can be seen here.
