    I was just wondering if this picture of president Abraham Lincoln would be considered important or commonplace. If anyone has any thoughts or ideas I would love to hear them.

      Your photograph is called a carte de visite or CDV-- these were highly collected during the Civil War era. They were collected in a manner similar to baseball cards.

      It is common to find CDVs of the famous in Civil War photograph albums-- Lincoln and General Officers.

      Your particular CDV is a lithographic view and fairly common. The photographic "from life views" are eagerly sought.

      Glad to help out.

      Any other photos in the album? I'd be interested in seeing any others.

      Scott,
      That is the only picture in that album box. I do have some old pictures around here. I could dig some up tomorrow if you are interested.

      It is up to you-- I collect and deal in antique images and never tire of looking at them!

      It is all in the content. The bust shots of typical folks are the least desirable-- but small details can really enhance desirability and collectibility.

      I have a lot of antique photograph postings on here-- if you have the inclination, take a look.
