Click an Image to Enlarge It
1841 Rare William Henry Harrison Embossed White Mourning Card, Horizontal Design, Carte de Visite Size, by Dickinson, Boston, Extremely Fine.

Elected in 1840, President Harrison gave his 100 minute Inaugural Speech in the snow, without hat or coat, caught pneumonia and died about a month later in 1841. Mourning cards for Presidents are not unusual, but this one is all in white and heavily embossed with its designs making it very unusual and rare. This Mourning Card has his Birth and Death dates. Two weeping angels flanking his portrait at bottom. There is also a single word penciled in the upper left corner. Aside from a couple finger smudges, this card is in excellent condition, and would make an great addition to a William Henry Harrison or Presidential Collection. The first of this type we have offered.
