Suspect Lincoln

 Cardboard Jugate of Lincoln & Johnson

February 5, 2023

Copake Auctions held a sale on Lincoln’s birthday, February 12, 2022. It included a gem cardboard jugate of Lincoln & Johnson which sold for $800. Unfortunately, it is a “boogered” piece made from a CDV picturing all the presidents through Johnson (cut down to size) and placed in a 20mm x 26mm gem frame. The winning bidder promptly listed it on eBay with a starting bid of $2450, but lowered the starting bid to $395 when alerted to its true nature. So far, no bites.
