Description

This postcard features an illustration done by artist Lloyd Ostendorf of President-elect Abraham Lincoln, his wife, and their three sons all standing in front of their church pew looking at the books in their hands in the First Presbyterian Church in Springfield, Illinois. The artist's signature with date is near the lower right corner of the image. The reverse is divided with the caption printed on the left side and the copyright date of 1965. A label pasted at the bottom of the left side reads "Compliments of Robert J. Patton, M.D., Lincoln Society of Philately 80 Ch. Issue limited to 300 copies." Just below the 4-cent Lincoln postage stamp the postmark reads "Springfield, IL, May 28, 1966, First Day of Issue."
