    Description

    INCREDIBLE, UNIQUE MATCHED PAIR OF 1864 LINCOLN AND MCCLELLAN PINBACK SHELLS.

    One silvered, one brass, both pristine, with original stick pins on reverse.  Neither is listed by Sullivan, and we have never seen another example of either.  Formerly in the renowned "pioneer" collection of Ed Veleber, and then in the revered private collection of Charles McSorley (pried away some time before that collection went to auction, where it commanded great attention and record prices).

    For jaded veterans like ourselves, who have pretty much "seen it all," this pair stands out as very special.  An important opportunity for the most serious and discriminating collector.
