For the past 25 plus years the President's Cigar and Hanky have been in The Collection of Raleigh DeGeer Amyx (a.k.a.) The American Heritage Collection. Mr. Amyx was fortuante in that Mrs. Lincoln presented, to his well known collection, a number of The President's personal possessions. In the near future these items may possibly be shared with another collector of note.
