    Lincoln & Hamlin: An Extremely Rare and Important Jugate Silk Ribbon in Pristine Condition.
    Above the portraits is a banner reading " Free Territory for a Free People", with a split rail fence appearing below. While this design appears on the market from time to time, auctioning for up to $3300, this silk version is prohibitively rare. Heritage has never offered one, and your writer has handled but a single example, sold privately for $6000 from the legendary Bill Mastro Collection in the early 1990s. A prominent New England dealer also sold an example some years ago for a reported $12,000. We doubt that more than 4-5 silk examples are known. The engraver of this lovely design was J. D. Lovett of New York, who also designed many of the familiar political medals of the day.
    Condition on this crisp, flawless example is unimprovable. One of the great Lincoln Campaign ribbons. Length: 6.375"
