    Grant & Wilson: Very Rare 1872 Grand National Banner IN COLOR. Along with its Greeley & Brown mate, among the rarest of this much-collected series. Small folio lithograph [12" x 15"], published by Currier & Ives in 1872, titled "The Workingman's Banner". It touts Grant as "The Galena Tanner" and Wilson as "The Natick Shoemaker". It represents an early attempt to appeal to working class voters. Typically seen in black & white, this is the ONLY example we have seen which has been contemporaneously hand-colored. Wide borders, extremely small area of loss in lower left corner, light, even toning, excellent overall. The color takes it to a whole new level... a wonderful discovery!
