    Abraham Lincoln: Springfield Home Wood Relic. 7.5" x 6.5" wooden frame housing a black & white snapshot of Lincoln's home in Springfield, circa 1910. The back paper is inscribed: "Frame made from wood taken from Abraham Lincoln's bedroom floor when the homestead was refurbished in July 1907 [signed] Mary Edwards Brown." Beneath that appears a label for "The Lincoln Homestead" signed again by Brown as Custodian. Brown was a descendant of Ninian Edwards, Mary Todd Lincoln's brother-in-law, whose home was used for the Lincoln wedding ceremony. She served as custodian for the site for a brief time before it was handed off to the State of Illinois. Chipping to the back paper with applied strips of masking tape around the perimeter, not affecting the inscription or label.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
