Pictured here is an 1860 Presidential campaign pin. The front side of the brass pin contains a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. The backside of the brass pin contains a different portrait of Hannibal Hamlin. Similar to current political pins, this brass pin was used to show support for a presidential candidate during the election cycle.
