    Fantastic Large 1860 Abraham Lincoln Ribbon Badge This dramatic 3.25" x 8.5" paper ribbon is one of the nicest Lincoln badges we have ever seen! Sometimes there is a question whether paper "ribbons" were in fact made for wearing, for use as bookmarks, or were simply proof versions for fabric ribbons. But this example was clearly for wearing, and still has the clearly-original holes for the horizontal straight pin by which it was once affixed to the coat of a Lincoln supporter. The most minor light soiling is noted for accuracy, but this item is in great condition, particularly considering its fragile nature. In all probability it was a prized political memento of the day and was carefully preserved.
