    Description

    Bell & Everett: Doubtless the Finest Available Example of the Largest Size 47 mm 1860 "Doughnut" Ferrotype. In the baseball card world they would call this a "blazer," with a flawless ferrotype surface and most of the original silvering intact. Like the other three examples of these 47 mm varieties in this auction, it retains an almost never-seen original suspension loop as well. What a superb set these four comprise! It took decades and multiple upgrades for the Frents to put together such a beautifully matched set. It would be nice to think that one discerning collector will decide to keep this unimprovable set intact. Like its companion pieces, this example is pictured on page 256 of Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.'s Running for President: The Candidates and Their Images.
