    Can this possibly be Abraham Lincoln. I picked this up with a bunch of pictures of presidents from a collector but not sure if this in reality is a young Lincoln or just an old miniature glass picture.

      Doesn't look like Lincoln and not a match to any known poses.

      It is an ambrotype (on glass) and dates from about 1854- 1865.

      Post the other photos when you have the time, I'd like to see them.

      Here is a posting that I did on what I call "looks like" images:

      You may find it of interest.

      That was great. Just read it. The lithograph I posted came from the same estate. I'm still trying to get information on it. It does say congress and Washington but haven't found anything on it as of yet.
