Here is a neat image of a civilian from 3/4 bust view. The image is a bit dark, but probably had more to do with how he is dressed. The image has some light scratches and a few waves, but is only really evident when tilted into the light. Looking head on it will display nicely. The cool thing about the image is what he is wearing on his lapel. When looking under a magnifying glass, you can see he has on a patriotic cockade - lightly tinted red - with a postage stamp image in the center. I have no doubt this is most likely Abraham Lincoln.

The image does not come in a case.
