Description

The engraving depicts an image of Abraham Lincoln's right-side profile, much in the same style as Anthony Berger's "The Famous Profile" photograph (Ostendorf-88), taken on 9 February 1864. The engraving was enclosed in a black wooden frame but was removed for preservation. On the frame's glass is a sticker inscribed with the number 21.
