Lincoln, Abraham. Autograph Signature on Card
A Great First Lincoln Signature!
Abraham Lincoln Autograph Signature Card for “Miss Tyler.”
Autograph collecting was a popular hobby in the Civil War era. Miss Tyler was not so different from many people today when it comes to meeting politicians.
A clean, clear Autograph Signature on a card. It would display quite nicely paired with a contemporary carte-de-visite photo or period engraving.
An envelope accompanies the signature card, identifying the recipient, a “Miss Tyler / Present” – meaning she was standing in front of Lincoln when he signed it for her.
