    Description

    Duo of "Freedom & Protection" Lincoln Campaign Medals. King-30, Sullivan-AL-1860-33. Brass, reeded edge, 30.9 mm, 11.4 gm. Dies by Robert Lovett, Jr. Obverse bust of Lincoln facing right, HON. ABRAM LINCOLN around, 1860 below. Reverse: LINCOLN & HAMLIN FREEDOM & PROTECTION around a thin circle that frames THE / MAN THAT / CAN SPLIT RAILS / OR GUIDE THE / SHIP OF / STATE. Two pieces, both holed for suspension. The first possesses AU details and prooflike fields, but has been cleaned, as evinced by fine, multi-directional hairlines on both sides. The second grades VF in terms of detail, but has also been cleaned and shows evidence of solder at 4 o'clock on the obverse. Obviously the two medals in this lot were proudly worn by Republican voters during Lincoln's first presidential campaign.
