Lincoln's Bullet

It just so happened in 1970-71 that an enameled plate on which I had etched a drawing I created of Lincoln's face had an accident while being fired in the kiln. A round black spot appeared on his forehead and I was not capable of burning it out. My neighbor who received the enameled plate a gift asked me if I knew how Lincoln had been killed. I only knew of the event. She informed me that the black spot on the plate, on Lincoln's forehead, showed the location where the bullet had lodged in the head! This was one of my first such experiences.
