Abraham Lincoln

Top Sellers

Items from presidents have been huge sellers, such as this extremely rare signed large albumen portrait of President Abraham Lincoln and his son Tad. This portrait is one of three known examples to exist, and it was signed by Lincoln at the White House in June 1864. This photograph was originally taken by Mathew Brady and it became the most popular photograph of Lincoln and his youngest son. This image of the 16th president is the main inspiration for Lincoln’s image on the penny and the old and new $5 bills. A timeless image that sold for $135,473 in February 2021.

RR is also no stranger to more unusual presidential items like this golf putter used by 40th U. S. President Ronald Reagan. Reagan used this putter on Air Force One on his journey to the Geneva Summit in 1985. At the Geneva Summit, Reagan met with former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev – aiming to reduce nuclear arms and avert the proposed ‘Star Wars’ missile defense program. This putter surpassed its estimate – earning a high bid of $150,000.

RR Auction made headlines for its record-breaking sale of a letter handwritten by First Lady Abigail Adams about the battles of Lexington and Concord for $106,998. This powerful letter was written to activist poet Mercy Otis Wilson, and Adams voices her hope for America and chastises Britain’s actions during the war. This letter has been referenced in several books about Abigail Adams including Abigail Adams: A Writing Life by Edith B. Gelles, and Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation by Cokie Roberts.

We even have experience with architectural pieces such as this White House plinth we sold for $187,500. This 200 year old ornament is an original plinth from the reconstruction of the White House during James Madison’s term in 1817. This piece is one of the only known pieces of the White House to exist in its original form from the 1817 construction. This plinth was sold during a live Remarkable Rarities auction in Boston in 2015.
