Engraved card, official souvenir of the Congressional memorial service for President James A. Garfield, Washington, 1882. Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Washington. Portrait of Garfield in frame of stars, oak and olive branches, flanked by flags and surmounted by sword; U.S. Capitol to left; Executive Mansion to right. Signed in the plate by John Sherman, chairman of Senate Committee, and William McKinley, chairman of House Committee.

This card would have been presented to members of Congress, government officials, family and dignitaries in attendance. As one would expect with a BOEP job (they print the nation's currency) the quality of engraving is superb. Superb example.
