    Same guy as the fake US Grant - this is just dumber. E-bay really needs to tell him to go away.

    Abe probably wished Mary looked this good ;)

    Would have thought a fake Grant would be almost as good as fake Abe and Mary, at least half as much. :D

            That guy is on crack. Doesn't look anything like the Lincolns. And 2 experts even said the same and he goes to great lengths to try and disprove them. Maybe I'll put the wet page images I took a few years ago up for sale and see if I can get a few million, hey I could be just as ludicrous and say they are of Billy Sherman.

                I don't know where these crackpots come from, but he sure writes powerful enough for me to read part way through just to see the idiocy. The real idiot though will be the person who actually makes a bid. I might watch this one just for the best laugh I'll get all day or week. Oh yeah, and my 12 year old daughter said the same thing as the 7 year old son.....no way.

                  Maybe I can sell the photo of myself with my old "Linkum" beard, as a rare image of Robert Lincoln.

                      1.One day, someone capable of thinking for themselves, (fancy that), will look beneath the surface of the unfamiliar appearance, and realize that where there's smoke, there's fire. I have been told, on more than one occasion, that the original daguerreotype would be worth nine figures if ever authenticated, as ridiculous as that sounds. So don't wait for the price to plummet on THIS daguerreotype. I'm fully prepared to wait until 2030 when we go traipsing off to Mars in search of intelligent life. It certainly seems to be in short supply on this planet.

                      2. If this photograph is ever fully authenticated, it will be accomplished in spite of the efforts by the Lincoln community to prevent it, instead of with the help of the Lincoln community, as it should have been from day one.

                      3. This is unquestionably an original daguerreotype of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln taken on or about March 4th, 1861. It is the Holy Grail of photographs and priced accordingly. Whether it will ever be fully recognized as such remains to be seen.
                      Is this guy a moron? He tell us that we need to think for ourselves and look beneath the surface of the guy in the picture....what r we suppossed to do take his face off? Second he says that is unquestionably an original of the Lincolns....if it is so unquestionable then why does he keep saying "if it is ever authenticated"? What a crack head.....probably needs money to score more rock.

                        Did you fella's read follow the link for the responses this clod got from esteemed photography centers? Every letter he got back says its not them and despite some similarites is a completetly different couple.

                        PS- If the picture was taken in in March of 1860, wouldn't Lincoln be beardless?

                          If that plate was taken in 1861 I'm the tooth fairy. Mary Todd Lincoln was much more up to date with fashion than to be wearing a dress that is mid to early 1850's in 1861. Not to mention....she got fat really fast too.

                            And old! I dont think Old Abe Himself is worth the price this rascal is asking for this image.

                            Maybe he ment that this was Jim Lincoln. :sarcastic

                              All,

                              I think the intent of this folder was to save for RESEARCH, any LEGITIMATE period photos. It is not the place, nor is there any place on this forum, to rag on obvious phoneys.

                              Please use this space only for documented, researchable photos.
