Abraham Lincoln Carte de Visite Photo, the “Cooper Union” pose.

From photographic negative from Brady’s National Portrait Gallery (backstamp).  It’s called the “Cooper Union” photograph, as it was produced when Lincoln spoke there at the behest of Eastern Republicans. That speech and this portrait, Lincoln later remarked, made him President.

Sharp, clear, and unblemished. [A similar carte sold at auction for $6,875 in August, 2018!]

(price is net to all)
