Outstanding Abraham Lincoln Memorial Circa 1865,
<B>Outstanding Abraham Lincoln Memorial</B></I> Circa 1865, miniature portrait of Lincoln mounted on a ribbon. Choice extremely fine. A 1" x .75" portrait of Lincoln, mounted on a black velvet, cream-bordered ribbon, 3.5" x 2.5" shaped like a cross. Affixed with an old straight pin to a piece of ruled paper. Likely a memorial piece. A very desirable Lincoln memorial memento, which "recycles" an 1864 campaign item which was probably leftover manufacturer's overstock from the election just months before. These cardboard photos in "gem" size brass shell frames were widely employed in political badges of the 1860s. Lot:258
