For President, Abram Lincoln. For Vice President, Hannibal Hamlin

Now this is an amazing piece of American history. This is a large campaign banner for Lincoln in 1860.

Print shows a large campaign banner for Republican presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln and running mate Hannibal Hamlin. Lincoln's first name is given here as "Abram." The banner consists of a thirty-three star American flag pattern printed on cloth. In one corner, a bust portrait of Lincoln, without beard, encircled by stars, appears on a blue field.
