    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Pre-Gettysburg Portrait. Alexander Gardner took this portrait of Lincoln eleven days before he delivered the Gettysburg Address. It is a ninth plate copy image of the albumen photograph and is designated O-79. It measures 2" x 2.5" and is housed in an embossed leather case with purple velvet liner. We have seen sixth plate versions of this, but this is the first ninth plate specimen we have encountered.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
