President Elect CDV Photograph of Abraham Lincoln taken by Alexander Gardner in the Brady Studio on Feb.24th,1861. This is the 1st Photograph of President Elect Lincoln (O-49) taken the day after his arrival in Washington D.C. The Quality is Exceptional with a Superb Ornate Case, Black w/Gold Trim. The Rarity of this near Confederate Piece is Incredible !!! This Wonderful Presidential piece was created between Feb.24th and June 8th,1861 in Nashville Tennessee by "Larcombe Photographist". Tennessee , an eventual Confederate State, did not leave the Union until June 8th, 1861 !!! It is truly Amazing that this CDV survived the War, especially in a Rebel State !!! This is the only "Rebel" print I have ever seen/Handled. Rare beyond Compare !!! Enjoy 😎
