    Breckinridge & Lane : A Monumental 1860 Campaign Ribbon Rarity.
    Perhaps because of the comparative availability of the Brady single portrait and jugate ribbon designs, many collectors fail to realize just how rare ribbons are for the regular 1860 Democratic Candidates. Sullivan and Fischer picture but a single variety, and in nearly 50 years in the hobby we haven't seen but a single example. This is a single example with larger head and lettering and the addition of a Breckinridge facsimile "signature" below his portrait. In terms of examples known, non- Brady Breckinridge ribbons are far rarer than those for sought after candidates as Jackson, Cass, Scott, and Pierce.
    This blue silk example is in excellent condition, with just a subtle hint of trivial light water staining. One of the most significant political ribbons it has ever been our privilege to present and a "holy grail" item for an advanced ribbon specialist.
