From my reading, Jules Verne grew his beard between 1855 & 1856
In the below 1876 image, note the collar of Verne's jacket is scallop shaped, and remains thin down to the place where the jacket overlaps. (i.e. at the level of the bowtie, the collar of the jacket dips in, and when it bumps back out, it is thinner than the collar above. (compare with the below 1879 image where the collar of the jacket gets wider)
1876
Age=48

Tinted version of above:

Same image, turned into an engraving.
The original of the engraving was modified by Andrew Nash to isolate Verne's head, and was subsequently used by the North American Jules Verne Society, Inc.

Postcard: bought from Estonia
(appears to be from same sitting (1876) as above, though he is turned more to the left, and the jacket collar is thin)

Engraving from book
sur terre et sur mer, 1876
(again, seems to be based on the same sitting)
In the below set of images the edge of Verne's collar can be seen under the bow tie, AND the collar of the jacket gets wider at the level of the bowtie.
aprox.
1879
My guess here is pre-1879
This particular image is taken from the book:

Men of Mark - 1876-1883
Published by: Lock and Whitfield

NOTE: my guess of the date of the image to the left is based on the fact that I have an identical image (reversed when printed) in a Danish (norwegian?) book, and it was published in 1879

I say the same image is reversed, because the pin that is in Verne's left lapel (right side of the image) appears in his right lapel in this books image!
