    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Pristine 1864-Dated Ferrotype Pin with Original Silk Ribbon Backing. Lincoln was assassinated less than six months after the 1864 election, and apparently there were still large stores of leftover campaign items. A number of cardboard and tintype portraits seem to have been "recycled", used as elements in mourning badges. The dominant strip of black silk ribbon clearly indicates this to be the case here. Very choice condition. Overall dimensions 4.5" x 4.75".

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
