Description

    Overwhelming, Huge 1860 Bell/Everett "Doughnut" Ferrotype
    J. Bell 1860-47 in Sullivan, Bell 3003 in Hake. This 47 mm monster is, including the frame, the largest campaign ferrotype ever issued. These "doughnut" style pieces, featuring bulbous, hollow silvered shell frames, were made in four sizes for each of the 1860 tickets, this being, of course, the largest. The ferros also came in several variations, and this is the most desired, with bold names and stars above the heads. The Bell side is choice, but the Everett portrait has "measles," a series of small black flecks as shown. Still a fine copy, one of only perhaps 5-10 known examples. From the Joe Brown Collection.
