The copper etching depicts a black and white bust portrait of Abraham Lincoln from the chest up. Below the portrait, Jacques Reich's signature appears along with a note regarding the material used to complete the etching. The portrait was enclosed in brown wood frame, held together by clear packing tape, but was removed for preservation. A paper mat that was glued to the portrait was unable to be removed due to risk of damage to the item.
