    Description

    Lincoln & Johnson: An Enormously Important 1864 Jugate Silk Campaign Ribbon. Arguably the top ribbon in the Frent Collection, it is almost certainly the certainly the finest known example (we have seen only two others, both with significant condition problems). This colorful red, white, and blue beauty is featured on p. 277 of Arthur Schlesinger, Jr's Running for President 1789-1896, and rightly so. Rarity, red, white, and blue color, and condition work together to make this the premium 1864 Lincoln ribbon variety. Other than a trivial light water stain at the top, it is in near mint condition. This is the first appearance of this key ribbon at auction, and may present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to add this crown jewel to an advanced ribbon or Lincoln collection. 2.875" x 7.875".
    From the Collection of David and Janice Frent
