Flawless example, superior to the Frent example which sold for $1,875.00 in 2018 (Heritage Auctions, The David and Janice Frent Collection of Presidential & Political Americana, Part 3 #6189, Lot 43254), and arguably the best example known. The larger size gives this style considerable presence over standard size ferrotypes.
