    Silk Ribbon for Zachary Taylor, One of the Rarest Candidates on a Political Ribbon. Zachary Taylor campaign ribbons are rare. Measuring 4.25" x 5.75", this ribbon is woven in exquisite detail; depicting Taylor in military uniform and a facsimile of his signature below his chest. The maker's name appears as Swiss Silk Manufacturer, with the initials Z.C.B., 1848. Listed in Fischer as ZT-4, this item presents in excellent condition with some very faint, trivial "aging"; the lower left corner of the ribbon is slightly trimmed away; a diagonal crease from lower left to right center could easily be pressed out.

    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.
