    Lincoln & Hamlin: Scarce Oversized 1860 Campaign Ferrotype. With a diameter of 30mm, this variety has considerably more display presence then the more familiar 24-26mm varieties. The exceptionally large and vulnerable tintype surfaces are excellent, marred only by an utterly trivial light irregularity in the field on the Hamlin side, noted for strictest accuracy. Much original luster on the brass shell frame. Each side carries the candidates named in the slogan "Free Soil & Free Men." This size and design can be found for all four 1860 candidates, and although they are relatively scarce, it is quite possible to assemble a most impressive set of the four.

    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.
