Wasn't this the first one? Of his wife hand made taken on 22 December 1895. The image above was taken on 23 January 1896.

why is there a secret '69' on the background of the two 'o' letters?

Hahahaha, yes noticed that too, but I don't think that it was on purpose given the fact where 69 stands for.......

Why does the rubber duck have such an image? Included contraband? Or a subtle reference to the use of ducks in optical transforms, related to X-ray diffraction?
