Description

    INCREDIBLE ORIGINAL DISPLAY CARD OF 1868 GRANT CAMPAIGN BADGES. 64 Twelve colorful blue and red painted brass pinback badges, with freely suspended albumen image of Grant between two American flags, all in great condition. Apparently the glue used to hold these pictures in place on this item was not of good quality as over the years we have seen at least a dozen empty badges of this type, as well as some with Grant photos which did not correspond to the present examples and which must be presumed replaced. These are clearly "right as rain." The 5" by 7 ½" card has some soiling at the top (looks like it could be cleaned to excellent conditon by any paper conservator). At present the card is nicely custom framed (not shown), with red and blue matting. Individual market value for these badges would be in the $300-$500 range, but a unit like this is almost priceless! (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
