Abraham Lincoln & Hannibal Hamlin
Superb 1860 Campaign Token Two-Sided Ferrotype


 

Lincoln & Hamlin: Superb 1860 Campaign Two-Sided Ferrotype. 24mm. A beautiful ferrotype in choice condition featuring a portrait of a clean-shaven Lincoln with his running mate, Hannibal Hamlin, on the obverse. Note the "beardless" Abraham Lincoln.     Also note, the Lincoln and Hamlin images on this particular campaign token are exceptionally high quality with more detail than most others I have seen in 35 years collecting... 

Condition:  Although they have some light scratches the contrast and clarity of the images are particularly extraordinary.  Many of these we’ve seen over the past 35 years have a blurriness to the photos.  These have exceptional detail and tonality.   Notice the detail in Hamlin’s eyes or Lincoln’s tie and hair.  These characteristics are not usually noticeable in the less detailed images that appear on the market.  
Also, most of these that surface for sale have pieces missing out of the images,  very darkened, or severly rubbed off and illegible., 

Description: 1" diameter gilt stamped brass frame portrait ferrotypes. Each side of frame stamped with name of candidate depicted in the corresponding portrait with each name and date "1860."... Frame holed at top for suspension.

See enlargeable images above and below.

Note:  The majority of these that appear on the market either have the images completely gone or severely disfigured.   This is an exceptionally nice, rarely seen  example!  And obviously Abraham Lincoln ORIGINAL Campaign relics have a historical significance and value that make them extraordinary investment.

*Note: From the same collection we acquired a Rare 1829 Andrew Jackson Campaign Novelty Bodkin, engraved "ANDREW JACKSON" on one side and "ELECTED PRESIDENT 1829" on the other.  Listed separately !
