Wikipedia says: “The Penny Profile”. Berger was the manager of Mathew Brady’s Gallery when he took multiple photographs at this Tuesday sitting. In 1909 Victor David Brenner used this image and one other similar image from this sitting to model the Lincoln cent.
“The famous profile by Anthony Berger, manager of Brady’s Gallery, Washington, D.C. … One of seven poses taken by Berger on Tuesday, February 9, 1864.”
