    Breckinridge & Lane: Jugate "Brady" Silk Ribbon. 2 1/4" x 7 1/4" silk ribbon with engraved portraits of the 1860 Southern Democratic Party nominees, copied from portraits by Mathew Brady. The edges have decorative intermittent loops. Next to the prohibitively rare Douglas & Johnson (with no auction appearances!), the Breckinridge & Lane is the rarest of the series of jugate "Brady" ribbons. This is a very rare and minty example. There is one raised vertical thread, as made, in the Breckinridge portrait, in the temple area. This detracts minimally from the overall appearance. Less campaign material was produced for Breckinridge than for any of the other presidential candidates in 1860.
