Quick Overview

This is an original and Scarce Abraham Lincoln 71st Anniversary Abraham Lincoln card dated 1880. This is one of a series of beautifully designed cards by Julius Francis of Buffalo. Francis was a successful drug store owner in New York he became obsessed with Abraham Lincoln after his assassination.

He was one of the earliest serious collectors of Lincoln memorabilia. In the years after President Lincoln's death he designed these cards to observe the birthday of Lincoln (although he called them anniversaries). He was also known for his numerous self-funded attempts to get Lincoln's birthday declared an American holiday. The cards were printed by Cosack & Co., Buffalo, New York. The last time we saw one of these cards was probably twenty years ago.

This particular card features an ornate drawing with the wording "Seventy FIrst Anniversary Abraham Lincoln" The date, February 12th 1880 and the slogan "with malice toward non, With charity for all" surrounding it." Also mentions World's Peace Jubilee"
