1860 Abraham Lincoln / Hannibal Hamlin Ferrotype Presidential Campaign Pin For Sale
Very rare and original, 1860 Abraham Lincoln / Hannibal Hamlin Presidential Campaign Ferrotype!!! This beautiful Ferrotype measures approx. 15/16” in diameter and features a tintype portrait of Abraham Lincoln on one side and of Hannibal Hamlin on the other. Around the brass frame that holds the images it reads “Abraham Lincoln / 1860” on the side with Lincoln’s photograph and “Hannibal Hamlin / 1860” on the side with Hamlin’s photo. The brass "frame" retains a significant amount of the original, gold colored, gilt surface and rim has a hole at the top edge for suspension from a ribbon badge as is typical of this type of Ferrotype Campaign Piece.
This original, 1860 Abraham Lincoln / Hannibal Hamlin Presidential Campaign Ferrotype is in very good condition. The Lincoln Tintype is well preserved - generally clean and crisp with sharp focus, strong contrast and rich tonality. There is no surface crazing or scratched but there is a single, central spot of surface loss in the area of Lincoln's nose (see the scans below). The Hamlin Tintype also exhibits sharp focus, strong contrast and rich tonality and has a small number of very tiny surface scratches (again see the scans below). The surfaces of both Tintypes are stable and sound with no surface crazing or flaking. The Rim of the Ferrotype retains some of its original, gold gilt surface in the recessed areas with just some very light surface wear to the highest spots of the lettering and the beaded rim. Overall this very rare Lincoln / Hamlin Ferrotype is well preserved and displays nicely.
A very rare and very desirable, 1860 Abraham Lincoln / Hannibal Hamlin Presidential Campaign Ferrotype and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
