The Henry Ford

The possessor of this small token supported Abraham Lincoln for president in 1864. Trinkets, such as this one, reminded American citizens why they backed certain parties and candidates. Most tokens were just that -- small coins carried around in purses or pockets. This token, however, could be attached to a ribbon or pin and became an outward display of support for the Republican candidate.
