    Highly Distinctive and Rare Unlisted Zachary Taylor Memorial Ribbon. Interestingly, more ribbon designs were produced to mourn Taylor's death in office that in support of his successful candidacy! More than merely having been a sitting president, Taylor was a national hero from the Mexican War, and Americans have always had a special place in their hearts for great military leaders (so long as they were successful. Remember George McClellan or William Westmoreland?). Because Taylor campaign ribbons are prohibitively rare, most ribbon collectors include his mourning ribbons in their collection. This is an especially nice one, a variety that we have not seen, and having a different Taylor portrait. Choice condition. 2.25" x 7".

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
