Steel engraving of Lincoln based on photo taken Feb. 9, 1864 mounted on small card. Original photograph by Alexander Gardner in Washington, DC. on Feb. 9, 1864.

A previous owner of this image bluntly labeled it, “A. Lincoln Dead.” Cartes-de-visite were collector’s items and sometimes traded like baseball cards today.
