Why weren't the contents shown? Where were they kept and where are they now?

Why two pair of glasses? Was one for distance, and the other for reading? I know it's a trivial question, but curiosity makes me go, "hmmmm".

The funeral car that carried his body to Illinois is now on loan to the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth. It is something to see.

Why two sets of eyeglasses you ask? Lincoln was known to enjoy picking on nerds.

Only if it had been Union money. I'm believing the other people here who are saying it was Confederate money.

Found this in Business Insider article: "Lincoln's possession of a Confederate bill remains a mystery....The bill was likely a souvenir from the president's victorious visit to the Confederate capitol of Richmond, Virginia only ten days earlier."
