I have a copy of this print that I inherited from E. Wallace Chadwick, a former member of the U. S. House of Representatives. We always assumed it was an authentic Lincoln signature because the signature is the only thing in the writing on the print that is not centered. But ours is signed exactly where these are signed, so it's clearly a facsimile.
