    Lincoln & Hamlin: An Absolutely Stunning, Large "Donut" Ferro in Virtually Pristine Condition. One of the standout items in the legendary Joe Brown collection, auctioned by Heritage in 2004. This variety is not to be confused with the similar donut varieties with thicker, hollow shell frames and made in four sizes for all four 1860 tickets. This variety has a heavy, solid frame and is unique to Lincoln and Hamlin. According to the late Charles McSorley, it was made by famed die-maker Robert Lovett, who created a number of the familiar campaign tokens of that era. Only one other example is believed known, in the collection of longtime Lincoln specialist and Heritage Consignment Director Don Ackerman (Don acknowledges that, while his is also in beautiful condition, the present example is the distinctly better of the two). Diameter 38mm.
