    Your image post dates the Civil War and Lincoln's death by several years:

    - It is a loose tintype with no indication of ever having been cased which would be very unusual for an early tintype
    - The fence prop is typical 1870s

    Additionally, "looks like" identifications are very common in antique images and rarely do they become historically accepted images of the famous person.

    In my opinion your image bears little resemblance (beyond the top hat) to any Lincoln image I have ever seen.
