DescriptionLincoln and McClellan: Stunning Pair of the Largest-size 1864 Ferrotypes. The ferro surfaces themselves measure approximately 37 mm, roughly the size of a silver dollar! The Lincoln is listed by DeWitt/Sullivan as AL 1864-83, but the McClellan mate was apparently unknown to them. The brass frames have a tiny hole at the top, and we have seen several examples with the remnant of a silk ribbon for suspension, as is the case with the Lincoln example offered here. The large, exposed ferro surfaces are in superb condition, the only trivial flaw being a black edge mark at 10:30 on the Lincoln. Our guess would be that there are somewhat fewer than ten known examples of the Lincoln, and perhaps half that of the McClellan. Together they make an unbeatable centerpiece for any 1864 collection.
