Image result for long lost lincoln letter up for sale

A once lost letter written by Abraham Lincoln responding to accusations of getting
in the way of a corruption investigation, is worth more than $80,000 – and it is now
for sale. The letter was one of several that were left in an abandoned house and
lost for many years. It is dated Feb. 12, 1864 and was addressed to Secretary of
the Treasury Salmon Chase, who Lincoln believed was behind “all the mischief”
in an accusation that the nation’s 16th president was thwarting a congressional investigation of corruption.   

Nathan Raab, the principal at The Raab Collection said…“This is a remarkable
find, we have no doubt it will find an appreciative new home.”

RARE COPY OF DOCUMENT FOUND!

(FoxNews) – A Las Vegas collector is marking the Fourth of July with a rare find
he stumbled upon–a copy of the Declaration of Independence produced in the
1830s.

An engraver made 201 facsimiles of the original Declaration of Independence in
1823 using a copper plate. Kevin Kostiner recently discovered that he has a reproduction of one of those facsimiles.

“It’s wonderful to see it,” Mark Hall-Patton, a Las Vegas museums administrator
told Fox5 Las Vegas. “You don’t see these (copies) of the original 201 that
were printed.”

According to reports, what Kostiner purchased at an auction for $75 may be
worth $35,000.

Kostiner was the winning bidder on four boxes of papers being tossed out by
the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.
