Suspect Lincoln

Bogus Ballot

December 28, 2019

We picture a rather problematic piece that was offered on eBay as a reproduction on aged paper. Apparently, someone took a Lincoln ballot from Massachusetts and photocopied it on paper of the appropriate size. It was very convincing. We book-marked it, but it was pulled from eBay after attracting but a single bid of $10. These are dangerous and we strongly discourage their production, even if accurately represented as replicas. No good can come of them.
