    Description

    Most Unusual And Colorful 1880 Garfield And Arthur Ribbon Badge
    As did many candidates of that era, Garfield traded heavily on his status as a Civil War veteran. Both Garfield and his opponent, Winfield Scott Hancock, had served as generals in the War (although Hancock had the more distinguished record), and they both assiduously courted the veteran vote. This colorful ribbon depicts a soldier in the field. Condition is Excellent, with just a hint of overall "aging." We cannot recall seeing another example offered for sale. 2" x 7 1/2". From the Joe Brown Collection.
