The tile printed with a glazed sepia image of Lincoln, slightly raised in areas to produce a subtle three-dimensional effect, inscribed on the reverse in commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, February 12th, 1909.
Modeled from the only untouched negative in the United States, taken 1864, in a cable-twist wood frame. Measuring 9 by 6 in., overall 11.5 by 8.75 in. (Cond: internal hairline firing crack)
