Extremely desirable ferrotype button from the 1860 presidential campaign, 1″ in diameter, featuring a portrait of the beardless Abraham Lincoln on one side, with his vice presidential running mate Hannibal Hamlin on the other. Their portraits are encircled with raised text, "Abraham Lincoln, 1860" and "Hannibal Hamlin, 1860." In fine condition, with Hamlin's image blurry; Lincoln's image is uncommonly sharp.
