Abraham Lincoln's Mustache
(Got Milk?)


Lincolniana is Abraham Lincoln memorabilia and ephemera in a variety of formats, ranging from the serious and scholarly, to the outright silly and satirical. Here are some Lincoln collectibles in the category, "Milk Caps."

"Lincoln" often appears on milk bottles and caps because of dairies named "Lincoln Dairy" or dairies located in Lincoln, Nebraska. If you search long enough, you'll discover promotional milk caps that went in those old bottles, like the ones pictured here.

Here's one that highlights Lincoln's assassination:

Even rarer are milk bottles that picture Abraham Lincoln, either as part of the glass mold or painted onto the milk bottle.

Happy hunting for this whimsical treat!
