    Matching 1860 Stephen Douglas Silk Ribbon Douglas, the "Little Giant," is generally considered to have been Abraham Lincoln's primary opponent among the 1860 candidates. Thus it seems surprising that the Douglas is by far the rarest of this set. The present example is, if not flawless, quite nice. It is not cropped short as so many are, and has no noticeable faults. A couple of very minor small holes at the top and several trivial tiny fox marks detract minimally, but must be noted. These ribbons come with both straight and delicately scalloped side edges; among this set of four, this is the only one with straight edges. 2.5 x 6.75".
