    Description

    Martin Van Buren: Rare Silk Campaign Ribbon from 1848. A similar design to one issued in his unsuccessful 1840 run as the Democratic Nominee, it features Van Buren as the free soil candidate, holding scroll reading "FREE SOIL and Freedom of the Public Lands to Actual Settlers". Near mint but for a few scattered utterly trivial small soil marks, mentioned only for the sake of accuracy. Attractively custom framed for display. The ribbon is 2.25" x 6.25", 5" x 9.5" as framed.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
