1863 - Piquette Lincoln gold pen
a com- a per- whst-:a-y un-fJrv of possi- That Pen. The pen with which the Presi dent elned tbe emancipation proclamation was a tccl one, with an ink-bespattered, brosen, wood nioaie E-cnange. This, we believe, is a mistake. The pen which the President used onthe occasion referred to wasa gold one. and was m&dc by C. II. Dunks, of this city by whom it was presented to the President a short time after his election. Mr. Lincoln, it is said. wrote his inaugural with tiic pen and then laid it carefully away, using it for no other purpose until the emancipation proclamation was written. It was afterwards given to Senator Sumner, by whom It was deposited in a Massachusetts Histori cal Society, where.it may now be ecen. Upon ex amination the brand of ' Piquette, Detroit," be fonnd upon the pen. A large assortment of the same kind may now be found at Dnnks', 15T Jeffcr son avenue..
