Description

    Greeley 1872 Ferro Stud
    A 16 mm stud-back button for Horace Greeley (1811-72), Democratic candidate against U.S. Grant in 1872. A leading publisher and founder of the New York Tribune, Greeley was often considered a thorn in Lincoln's side with "Copperhead sympathies" criticizing the Union Commander's prosecution of the war. The ferro is complete, bright and clean, but has a very minor bump/dimple at his left cheek and above his eye... a slight raise in the tintype from the stud on the reverse, as made. All Greeley material is scarce; this is a very nice example. From the Joe Brown Collection.
