    Grant & Colfax and Grant & Wilson: Pair of Jugate Cartes-de-Visite. The Norris Engraving and Publishing Company of Paterson, New Jersey made very ornate political plaques for U. S. Grant in 1868 and 1872. These plaques, mounted in deep Victorian frames, are a collector favorite. They were made using both albumen photos and three dimensional metal busts. We offer a pair of CDV's showing the 1868 and 1872 albumen photo versions of the plaques. One card has the imprint of the Norris Company on the verso, soliciting agents for the sale of the plaques. The other has a blank verso, but is titled "The Unanimous Nomination". Both are in excellent condition with slightly clipped corners.
