    Abraham Lincoln: A Great 1/4th Plate Tintype, Showing Him Seated in the Famed "Brady Chair". This wonderful image was shot by Alexander Gardner on November 8, 1863, and emphasizes Lincoln's long, lanky legs. The studio chair had formerly been in use at the U.S. House of Representatives. Condition of the tintype itself is superb - virtually mint. The original leatherette case shows surface wear as usual. The badge attached to the interior velvet was found with this piece and may well date from the 1864 political convention. We can't recall having previously seen this highly desirable Lincoln pose on tin. A very special opportunity for the serious Lincoln or photography collector.
