Do you think this is Abraham Lincoln’s business card? Would be sweet if it was.

 

Businessmen and professionals have used business cards for over 200 hundred years so it is quite possible that Abe Lincoln used one to disseminate his contact information as he traveled Illinois as a circuit lawyer.

I think the give away is that Lincoln did not refer to himself as a rail splitter. That was a fabrication of his presidential campaign staff.

So this is clearly a hoax. There is more information at the link below.
