    Stunning Large 1860 Lincoln/Hamlin Ferrotype Rarity
    Unlisted by Hake, and listed, but unpictured, by Sullivan as AL 1860-82. (Sullivan relied on a listing in King-#131-to reference this item, but neither Sullivan nor King had access to an example to photograph, hence Sullivan's erroneous description of the Lincoln pose). Similar to the familiar "doughnut" ferros with hollow, silvered frames; however, this variety has a solid and somewhat less bulbous frame. We have seen only one other, which changed hands privately in the very early 1990's at $4000, and is now ensconced in the collection of a leading Lincoln specialist. Superb, pristine condition. Seldom does a Lincoln piece of this rarity, beauty, and condition come to market. 38 mm. From the Joe Brown Collection.
