Daguerrian tokens are difficult to find and I managed to acquire two nice examples recently. Shown here is a fine c.1850 token for M.A. Root's gallery also noting that he won a 'first premium' award for his daguerreotypes.

    I too like photo ephemera-- I don't collect the cameras, but this type of item looks great with antique images as well.

    Thanks for sharing,
