    Description

    Spectacular Circa 1864 Ferrotype Badge with Abraham Lincoln and Wife Mary Todd Many widely-distributed items were produced during Lincoln's Presidency which pictured him with his First Lady, notably cartes de visite. But we have never seen this beautiful form before. Probably sold as a Washington souvenir, or at a public appearance, made by both the Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. Individual ferros in "gem" frames are affixed to a blue silk ribbon, with typical Civil War-era eagle pin at top for attachment. In great condition, and a wonderfully unique Lincoln display item. Overall length 3.75".

    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.
