    SCARCE 1860 BRECKENRIDGE AND LANE FERROTYPE. While many people view the 1860 election race as a contest between Lincoln and Stephen Douglas, Breckenridge and Lane were actually nominees of the official Democratic Party. However they garnered little support in the changing political climate, so not surprisingly their campaign items are the scarcest for any of the 1860 tickets. On this copy the portraits are a little dark as made but quite clear. For accuracy we note a very trivial blemish on Breckenridge’s cheek. There is some minor perimeter imperfections on the reverse and one mark on Lanes cheek. Still, in all, a very presentable example.
