    Pierce & King: Extremely Rare Jugate Silk Ribbon for the 1852 Democratic Ticket. Pierce comes in a close second to Cass in terms of overall rarity of campaign ribbons. As for Cass, Sullivan and Fischer list four varieties. As a general rule, jugate ribbons of this era are rare and more highly valued than the single picture style. However in the case of Pierce, this jugate design is probably the most readily available. Nonetheless there are certainly fewer than ten examples known to the organized hobby. Overall condition is excellent, and dramatically superior to the Fischer plate example. Only for strictest accuracy do we note one tiny original pinhole from wearing at the top, and several pinhead-sized spots in the field. A fine horizontal crease across the center does not affect wording or portraits; it is barely noticeable and it detracts minimally. Full original selvage across top and bottom. Length 6.25".
