DescriptionHorace Greeley: Wearing a Hat Inside a Hat! Without a doubt the best variety of Greeley-in-the-hat ferro, and in choice condition. Various Greeley campaign items show him wearing his trademark hat, even including an enameled pin in the form of the hat with the initials "HG" on it. All are rare, but with just several known examples this is the premium design.
Unlisted by DeWitt/Sullivan, it features a distinctive photo set into a three-dimensional brass hat, with original pin on verso. We know of only one other example, and this portrait was used only on this variety. One of the top ferrotypes in the Berman Collection. 25 mm x 29 mm.
