GENERAL FRANKLIN PIERCE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES pewter lid to a shaving mirror. 3" diameter. The edge of the rim which originally fit over the mirror portion is intact but has been folded flat. Even though this refers to "President" Pierce, it's likely this was made as an 1852 campaign piece. Despite the fact that this is only the lid, it's in excellent condition and an exceedingly rare display piece. We found only one other example which was offered by Heritage Auctions in 2009 and fetched over $3,500. $1,400-$1,600
