Very rare, original, 1864 Abraham Lincoln Presidential Campaign Ferrotype Pin in excellent, original condition. This beautiful Lincoln Ferrotype Campaign Pin measures approx. 15/16" in diameter and features a tintype image of a bearded Abraham Lincoln mounted in a shell brass frame with its original, clasp type pin attached to the back. Text on the surround reads "For President / 1864". There is also text above the portrait within the Tintype Photograph that reads "A. Lincoln". This Ferrotype is designated as Sullivan Number AL 1864-95 and is in outstanding, original condition.
This original, 1864 Campaign Ferrotype Pin is in excellent condition. The image itself is clean and crisp and exhibits razor sharp focus, strong contrast and rich tonality. There is some light surface crazing that is visible only when the Pin is held at an acute angle to a light source but no flaking, surface loss, significant scratches, damage or repairs of any kind. The shell brass mount is also exceptionally well preserved retaining 90%+ of its original, gold gilt surface. Overall this is an exceptionally well preserved example of a rare, 1864 Abraham Lincoln Campaign Ferrotype Pin and it displays beautifully (looks much better in hand than in the close-up scans below).

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.
