It doesn't have to be silver-plated copper. It can be any silver plate. Pure
silver is better but not essential. People have made daguerreotypes on a
polished silver dollar. 
Check out www.cdags.com and www.newdags.com and you'll find answers to many
of your questions.

Does the base plate have to be silver-plated copper? Can a silver plate be
used instead? How pure does the silver coat need to be?
