Description

This print features a beardless Abraham Lincoln positioned at a three quarter angle with his head pointed to his left. Lincoln's image sits inside a small oval in the center of the print. Lincoln wears a dark jacket and vest, along with a white collared shirt and black bow tie. The oval is in the center of a shield with vertical stripes across the center and rows of dots along the top. The shield is then surrounded by a circle of stars. The word "IMPROVED" is printed in large black block letters at the top of the paper. A relatively illegible signature of "R. D. Parker" is written below the shield. There is a line that circles around the bottom of the stars at the bottom of the page.
