    RARE AND IMPORTANT 1860 BRECKINRIDGE/ LANE JUGATE FERROTYPE IN CHOICE CONDITION. This design was made for all four 1860 tickets, and is considered the first photographic jugate pinback ever made. Of the four, the Breckinridge- Lane and the Douglas-Johnson are significantly scarcer than the Lincoln-Hamlin and Bell-Everett, with probably not more than 10-12 copies of each known in all conditions. Interestingly, although most people tend to think of Stephen Douglas as Lincoln’s principal opponent in that election, Breckinridge was actually the nominee of the official Democratic Party, while Douglas and Bell ran as splinter candidates. The present example is superb: the Ferro surface is essentially mint even under 15-power magnification! Original pin, possibly re-attached, on reverse. A prize!
