New Lincoln Photo

March 9, 2009: There's yet another Lincoln photo recently discovered. I've been able to bring it into the Color of Lincoln collection in rather short order. OK - I'm having second thoughts It's provenance is substantial enough for me to weigh in that it is likely Lincoln. Initially it looks good but the only clue that this tiny image is Abraham Lincoln is the written caption on the back indicating Lincoln in front of the White House & that it comes from Ulysses S. Grant's personal collection. So why didn't they get handwriting verification to add to the provenance? Seems less than the stellar experts job in trying to prove the facts before promoting the image as a new find. Hoax Alert!! Check it out in color at www.ColorofLincoln.com
