Antique daguerreotype photograph of a woman

Antique daguerreotype photograph of a woman. I recently had a trio of antique daguerreotype photos come into the shop and this is one of them. It is in a beautiful leather case with a gilt brass edge. The other half of it's leather case is missing. The picture features an older woman. While I was able to take an excellent photo of the image, (I don't know why it looks lightly coloured too) in person it is very silver and reflective. You have to tilt and move it to see all the image, much like a hologram. From the notes on the rest of the group it likely the woman's name was Olive Smith. The case is just over 3” ( 7.5 cm) by 3 1/2” ( 9 cm).
