    Rare 1864 John C. Fremont - John Cochrane Gault Frame Ferrotype This distinctive design is highly favored by collectors, especially since it is not terribly difficult to put together a matched set for the three 1864 candidates: Abraham Lincoln, George McClellan, and John C. Fremont. The famed "Pathfinder" represented the radical/liberal wing of the Republican Party and split with the Lincoln supporters that year. Very bright and "minty" condition, with strong portraits. When you turn the piece in the light, there is some bubbling in the surface emulsion on both sides, but the surfaces are completely unbroken. The Fremont side is near-perfect. A fine and appealing example. Larger 25 mm size.
