Unknown Maker, Two Miners with Gold Nugget Stick-Pins, Quarter plate daguerreotype. Collection of Oakland Museum of California, Prints and Photographs Fund
    The stick pins shown on these two gentlemen were painted in by the photographer after the picture was taken. Their shirts are very decorative, and the fact that they chose to pose together probably means they were mining partners.
