(CNN) – A sword stolen from Lincoln’s tomb in Springfield has been replaced.  A Chicago sculptor used broken pieces of the recovered sword to make silicone molds for the new one.  The sword was reattached Friday.

You might remember a teenager stole the sword back in October of last year.  That one was a copper replica of the original bronze one, which was stolen in 1890.
