1860 was a good campaign for collectors. The most valuable items are those featuring ferrotypes. Lincoln memorabilia is particularly popular and will see high values. There are approximately 120 different photographs of Lincoln to be found (though not all are on ferrotypes). Collectors should note that Lincoln beardless photographs are from 1860 campaign. Bearded photos can be from any other period. Other Lincoln themes are Honest Abe, rail splitting, the West, and pro-unity catchphrases such as “The Union Must and Shall Be Preserved”.
