Personally signed photograph – Lincoln still speaks to us today through the treasure trove of images taken of him between 1846 and 1865. This image taken in Springfield by Alexander Hesler in June of 1860 shows the beardless candidate during his run for the Presidency. It is autographed “Yours Truly / A. Lincoln.”
