    Description

    James Monroe: Exceedingly Rare 1820 Republican Convention Ticket. The precise use of this most unusual ticket seems a little unclear. It may have been distributed at a Rhode Island meeting of Republican stalwarts at which the party's electors for the federal Electoral College were selected, or it may have been distributed following that meeting and announcing the convention's selection. In any case, it names the four Rhode Island men chosen to vote for Monroe for his second term in office. Overall display condition is good, although there is an area of soiling as shown. The small piece incorporating the right border had been cleanly cut off and has been reattached, and there is a small piece missing along the bottom edge as shown. The borders have been trimmed, and there is seemingly unrelated old ink writing on verso. 4.25" x 3.625".
