Scarce McClellan-Pendleton Ferrotype(1864) McClellan-Pendleton Ferrotype. Similar to Sullivan-GMcC-1864-52. Plush button-style ferrotype with suspension loop, 26 mm, 3.0 gm, metal frame around portraits. Obverse ferrotype of McClellan, but legend G.B. M'CLELLAN. Reverse portrait with G.B. PENDLETON above. At least scarce, if not downright rare, this piece shows some minor fraying on the cloth, with the actual ferrotypes clear and apparently about as made. An interesting memento of "The Great Hesitator" and his running mate. Although Lincoln ferrotypes of 1864 are more popular, the ferrotypes of other politicians of the day are scarcer.
