    Extremely Rare and Important John Tyler Silk Ribbon No president is tougher for collectors than Tyler as he assumed the presidency in 1841 upon Harrison's death, and had little support for the 1844 nomination. Sullivan lists a meager four items, all prohibitively rare; Hake's 1789-1916 volume lists nothing for Tyler. Sullivan and Fischer's ribbon book lists two Tyler ribbons, but pictures only one. The pictured example has the same image as the present copy, but lacks the marvelous quote below. It is certainly safe to say that fewer than ten total examples exist in the hobby of all Tyler ribbons, and this design is surely the most desirable! Excellent condition but for trivial bit of damage in upper right corner, as seen in the photograph. One of the major items from the former Joe Brown Collection.
