    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Cased 1860 Ambrotype. Sixteenth plate ( 1 3/8" x 1 ½") ambrotype of a beardless Lincoln, attributed to C. S. German of Springfield, taken September 23, 1858 (O-9). This appears to be a copy image of a salt print, as the oval shape of the photograph so-copied is readily apparent. Improper processing has resulted in light and dark areas, as shown. Likely issued for the presidential election of 1860. Housed in an embossed leather frame.
