    Description

    James A. Garfield: Rare and Colorful Tobacco Box Label. 13.25" x 10" chromolithograph paper label for "Tow Path Fine Cut Chewing [Tobacco]". It depicts Garfield as statesman, tow path boy, school boy, Union general, legislator and President. Printed by Calvert Litho of Detroit. A missing section at the bottom would have included a price list for labels. One small hole near center and a 2" lateral tear on right side, affecting the bottom vignette. Central vertical fold. A gorgeous piece... the only example we have seen.
