This antique stanhope Civil War commemorative bullet depicts a very rare single view depicting President Abraham Lincoln delivering his famous Gettysburg Address to a large and diverse crowd of people from what looks to be a wooden stage built for the occasion. After the Battle of Gettysburg, some of the left over bullets were used to make these stanhope souvenirs. Most common are bullets of the .56 -.58 cal. pointed type. This example appears to have been un-fired and likely dropped on the Battlefield and it is about .62cal. It is the round or mini ball type. The image is very nice and clear and easy to see after a complete and thorough restoration of the stanhope lens. The view is titled LINCOLN DELIVERING THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS NOV 19, 1863 under the picture. It's also marked MADE IN FRANCE along the right side.
