    Description

    Grant & Colfax and Seymour & Blair: Most Unusual Pair Of Chewing Gum Wrappers from the 1868 Election. We have never seen these before, and it is particularly unique to find them as a pair! The Seymour is in better overall shape, although a little faded. The Grant has some water staining and edge chipping, but still contains the original contents (badly deteriorated). Both have glue residue on backs from old album mounting. Each 2.75" x 1.5". From the U. I. "Chick" and Cecilia Harris Collection.
