Antique Victorian Die Cut Forget Me Not Abraham Lincoln Memorial
Dating to the late 1890s may I offer this Victorian die cut printed to commemorate the passing of Abraham Lincoln. The hand holds an American flag and the leaves bear pink and red roses. At the center is the late President with a pink banner at the bottom reading Forget Me Not.
Condition: The edges of the leaves show ink loss, wear. Near Lincoln's left eye is a pock mark - probably a happenstance from being in an album for too long that had other paper on the side that could poke or leave a mark. No glue residue to the back - a perfect pristine back.
Size: 3-1/8" x 2-7/8" approx.
Final Comments: There were only a few designs made of Lincoln - the pieces are very hard to find in good condition.
