    Abraham Lincoln and George B. McClellan: Terrific Matched Pair of Colorful Large Ribbon-like Paper Badges. These would be worn pinned to one's coat, just as fabric ribbons were. They were sold by the "Satin and Paper Badge Depot" in Philadelphia. If printed on silk this pair would easily fetch somewhere north of $20,000! Together they make a wonderful centerpiece around which to build a fine collection of 1864 campaign items. The Lincoln is in near-mint condition, the McClellan very slightly toned with one crease in upper RH corner, not affecting the design. Each approximately 3.25"x 7.5" A rare opportunity to acquire a matched pair of these colorful 1864 portrait ribbons.
