DescriptionAbraham Lincoln: Large Tintype in Brass Frame. This tintype was made from an engraving done of the original photograph by A. Berger (#O-92). Taken on February 9, 1864, this is the very portrait that was used on the five-dollar bill. Here the image is reversed from the original; however, this is common with tintypes. His cheeks have been tinted rose, and then the entire tintype has been set into a handsome brass frame. This piece is perfect for placing in a union case or other display item. In very fine condition; minimal scratches and blemishes; two small blemishes on the president's face. Size: 1.5" x 2". Please note that this is much larger than the standard .75" x 1" "gem" frame.
Fees, Shipping, and Handling Description: Small Flat (view shipping information)

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
