Abraham Lincoln & Johnson
Ferrotype Campaign Token, 1864
"For President Abraham Lincoln 1864"


Incredible, Extremely Scarce - 1864 Lincoln & Johnson Ferrotype Campaign Token.    In unheard of, Extraordinary Near-Mint Condition!
You will be hard pressed to ever find one in this superb condition again!

Serious Lincoln collectors will appreciate the RARITY of this Historical Lincoln treasure. These "type" examples of a round, bearded 1864 Lincoln & Johnson ferro are much scarcer than the 1860 versions with Lincoln & Hamlin. For every ten Lincoln/Hamlin campaign tokesn that appear on the market, there is ONE Lincoln/Johnson token. 

The major auction houses like Heritage Historical Signature auctions have recorded about ten Lincoln/Hamlin campaign tokens sold over the past five years. A Lincoln/Johnson 1864 Campaign token, ONLY ONE! And, that one is not even as rare as this token which has the "bearded Lincoln" image but has printed on the token "FOR PRESIDENT 1864" then on the ferrotype image "A. Lincoln" and on the reverse, "FOR VICE PRESIDENT 1864" , then on the image “A. Johnson”. The single 1864 campaign token that appeared on the market about 4 years ago did NOT have "FOR PRESIDENT” printed on it and it only had “Lincoln” without the first initial. This may be one of the very few of it’s kind in existence!    Retains integral loop at top for suspension.
Condition Report: Near mint.

And, it is in amazing condition! NOTE: None of the typical image corrosion, scratches, pieces missing you normally see on these Lincoln campaign tokens.

A truly rare and very important find!! A few months ago we acquired the more common Lincoln/Hamlin 1860 campaign token which sold within a day. This MUCH RARER gem is sure to not last long amongst our special clients who collect Historical & Abraham Lincoln artifacts

Size: About 1" diameter
