    Matched Pair of Benjamin Harrison Campaign and Inaugural Ribbons This is a pair of woven ribbons, likely manufactured in Paterson, New Jersey, each depicting Benjamin Harrison. Each silk ribbon measures 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" and has the candidate's simulated signature below. The "plain" version was issued as a campaign item in 1888. It has some minor light soiling. The "improved" version has a red overprint reading "Inaugurated March 4, 1889." It is a very clean specimen except for some minor "running" of the ink in the flag's stripes.
