DescriptionAbraham Lincoln, Stephen A. Douglas, John C. Breckinridge, and John Bell: A Spectacular Matched Set of Four "Doughnut" Ferrotypes in Superb Condition. The four vice presidential candidates on reverse, all equally nice. These are the third of four sizes in which these "doughnuts" were made with diameters of 30 mm (a "standard" front/ back 1860 ferro is 25 mm). The style acquired the nickname because of the bulbous, hollow silvered brass shell frames.
The temptation to offer these individually was great, particularly because it is so hard to find specimens in such choice condition. But they form such a beautiful matched set we could not bring ourselves to separate them.
