    Abraham Lincoln: A Rare Tintype Badge in Most Unusual Intermediate Size. Collectors are familiar with this portrait in ¾" x 1" "gem" frames, and is occasionally found in a somewhat larger 1" x 1.5" version. Also familiar is a larger version set into an embossed carte de visite. However, we cannot recall having encountered it in this intermediate 1.5" x 1.875" form. Beautiful, near-mint condition. Original cardboard backing shows moisture spotting and still has original revenue stamp affixed. A very special item for the sophisticated Lincoln collector.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
