This print features a head-only engraved portrait of President Abraham Lincoln on an advertisement for the Zeese-Wilkinson Company, Inc.

In the lower margin is the text stating the name of the company with the president's name, Wm. J. Wilson, and the year it was established, 1904. On the reverse side is an advertisement for The Beckett Paper Company. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
