Lot 0053
1" brass shell listed as DeWitt 1864-94 and Hake # 3080. Obv. text "For President Abraham Lincoln" accented by a pair of shields enclosed in stars and wreaths. Tiny rim hole at top as issued. Reverse "For Vice President Andrew Johnson" with small text "Pat Aug. 12, 1862". There are matching pieces for McClellan and Fremont. Near microscopic tiny wear traces on the emulsion of Lincoln's face but his image, with excellent contrast, displays at least NM to the naked eye. Much obverse luster. Reverse is essentially Mint. A superb example overall and extremely popular with collectors. Ron Koot Collection.
