Kerry Rodgers of Auckland, New Zealand writes:
This American Bank Note Company advertising item sold for $1,652 in Archives International Auction XI held in May. It shows Lincoln and Grant flanking a gentleman. The catalog believes him to be a Russian and the item to date from the1860s. Can any reader provide an identification?
Kerry later came up with a potential identification, but let's first see what readers think. Is this really a Russian? Or a famous bloke from some other country?
