    Description

    Silas Wright: 1844 New York Governor Ribbon. This 3" x 6 ¼" silk ribbon depicts Silas Wright, the successful Democratic candidate for Governor of New York in 1844. It is the only example of an antebellum "local" ribbon we have ever seen. Gubernatorial and Congressional candidates were sometimes mentioned in conjunction with presidential candidates, but stand-alone items are indeed rare.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
