    James K. Polk: Wonderful Louisiana Anti-Bank Silk Ribbon. This might be the best Polk ribbon we have ever seen. It measures 3" x 7" and was authorized and "Approved by the Louisiana State Democratic General Committee." It was engraved by J. V. Childs of New Orleans. It has some great design elements including an eagle, draped U. S. and Lone Star flags, scenes of commerce, a large portrait of Polk, and an anti-bank quote by the candidate. It is titled: "James K. Polk. The People's Candidate for the Eleventh President of the United States of America." Beautiful, near-mint condition with much of the original sheen. We sold an example in lesser condition for $4,500 in February 2016 (Merrill C. Berman Collection Part IV).

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
