Sale 2486 Lot 65
(PHOTOGRAPHY.) Buttre-Momberger 1865 engraving of Lincoln, with a tintype copy. Engraving, 15 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches; mat toning, minor foxing. Tintype photograph, 8 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches; moderate wear including light crease through Lincoln's chin with slight loss, tape remnants on verso. Np, circa 1865
Estimate $250 - 350
The print is reversed in the tintype image, and might easily be mistaken for an original photograph of Lincoln but for the hatch marks in his clothing. Part of Momberger's decorative border can also be seen in the margins, though the caption is not visible.Price Realized (with Buyer's Premium) $250
