    Spectacular 1916 Hughes Torchlight Parade Sash
    Complete sash, including back section, worn over the shoulder and diagonally across the chest. Gold letters read, "Grand Marshall... Hughes Torchlight Parade, Nov. 4th, 1916." Great condition, and nicely custom-framed for display. A most unusual item for a tough candidate, especially nice because of the torchlight parade reference, a particularly popular subject with collectors. Coincidentally, this sash comes from the same Nov. 4 event as the spectacular Hughes badge offered elsewhere in this catalog, although they came to us from different sources. It would perhaps be nice to get them back together again after nearly a century. 10" x 41" as framed.
