This is a Lincoln bicentennial license plate. It is an aluminum rectangular plate with a gray pixelated background. At the top is the phrase "Kentucky/Unbridled Spirit." To the left are the dates "1809-2009" above a red stylized log cabin. Beneath the cabin are the words "abraham/LINCOLN/BICENTENNIAL" (sic). The license plate number is in the center. Running across the bottom are the words "BIRTHPLACE OF LINCOLN." All lettering is in black ink. In the right upper corner are several layers of registration tags. The top tag is yellow with black lettering. There are four holes (two on the top and two on the bottom) for attaching the plate to a car.
This is a reproduction of print of a political cartoon titled "Dividing the National Map" that was originally published by Rickey, Mallory & Company, Cincinnati in 1860. The cartoon depicts Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas struggling to control the northern and western states while John C. Breckinridge claims the south and John Bell attempts to glue the map back together. The original publisher information is printed in the lower left corner of the image and reads, "Published by Rickey Mallory & Co 13 W. fourth Str. Cin. O." Below the publisher's name, there is small italicized text with the contemporary publisher name: "University of Kentucky Facsimile Carton No. 7."
