    Hayes & Wheeler: Rare 1876 Jugate Campaign Bandanna. Conjoined busts with ribbon below reading "Hon. Rutherford B. Hayes Ohio and William A. Wheeler New York" and "Republican Candidates for President & Vice Prest." A similar version is listed by Collins in Threads of History as number 457 on page 213, although the dimensions are slightly larger. The plate example, the only other copy we have ever encountered, is in the J. Doyle Dewitt collection at the University of Hartford. With its bright red border this is a wonderful display piece for this GOP ticket. Perhaps because 1876 was America's centennial year or perhaps because of the controversy which swirled around that election, Hayes items have always been particularly sought after by collectors.

    The present example is in very nice condition, free of the browning usually seen along the traditional quarter-fold lines on scarves of this era. The background, presumably originally a purer white, has toned evenly to a pleasing light beige shade. There is relatively minor damage in the right border: a 2" tear in the upper right-hand corner and a 3" partial separation farther down in the red border on the right side. One pencil eraser-sized hole near the lower edge and a 1" vintage sewn repair in the red border are also noted for strictest accuracy. As the photo shows, the overall condition is distinctly superior for a bandanna of this vintage. 26" x 21".
