Abraham Lincoln's One Hundred and Ninety-Ninth Birthday II

Earliest photograph(s) of the 16th President of the United States of America.

For many decades, the daguerreotype on the left was believed to be the earliest photograph of Abraham Lincoln, about 1846-1848; since 1987, the daguerreotype on the right has been claimed as an earlier image, possibly from 1840-1841.
