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.
This is the same gallery mentioned in the "Daguerreotypist" story in my other CW post at: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/64571-the-daguerreotypist--a-story-from-the-1?in=user
