Mourning Daguerreotype pendant

This is one of my favourite pieces in my collection. A fairly large gold mourning pendant houses a daguerreotype of a slightly older well dressed gentleman. The pendant is just under three inches tall and about 2.3 inches wide.

At the back is a repository that may have at one time held a small photo or possibly a lock of hair. It may be empty now or if there was something, time has destroyed it. I have not opened the repository as I'm afraid of breaking it.
