Greetings all,

Found this dandy at a colonial site in CT. The male bust depicted has short hair and long curly beard. The inner circle surrounding the bust is pressed such that it protrudes slightly at the reverse. By far the heaviest, most sturdy dandy I've found yet.

I had the same thought as 'How Lucky', possibly an early Lincoln Presidential Campaign button? :icon_scratch:

Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809, to Nancy and Thomas Lincoln in a one-room log cabin in Hardin County, Kentucky. His family moved to southern Indiana in 1816. Abraham Lincoln was a self-taught lawyer, legislator and vocal opponent of slavery, was elected 16th president of the United States in November 1860, shortly before the outbreak of the Civil War. Lincoln proved to be a shrewd military strategist and a savvy leader.

Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation Act paved the way for slavery’s abolition, while his Gettysburg Address stands as one of the most famous pieces of oratory in American history. In April 1865, with the Union on the brink of victory, Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by Confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth.
