Cool EDC: Abraham Lincoln's Pocket Content

I always enjoy learning what great people carried in their pockets. Says a lot about them and there’s usually some interesting idea to pick up.
What was Abraham Lincoln's EDC the day he was assassinated?

Objects found in President Lincoln’s pockets: two pairs of spectacles and a lens polisher, a pocket knife, a watch fob, a linen handkerchief, a sleeve button, and a brown leather wallet containing a $5 Confederate note. Image courtesy of the Library of Congress.
Knife, wallet, cash, handkerchief. Looks like good EDC for a President.
If anyone has more information about those watch fobs that would be nice to know, please leave a comment. And one more thing: If there's a watch fob... then where's the watch?
