The dates include 1914, 1915, 1916, 1917, and 1918. The subset also includes a February 12, 1923 commemorative stamp, which features the image of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The paper card mount's recto also contains biographical information about Abraham Lincoln's young adult years well as a color illustration, Lincoln as a Young Adult in Illinois. The biographical information continues on the card's verso along with excerpts from William H. Herndon's account of Lincoln's first term in the Illinois House of Representatives.
