    Tilden & Hendricks: Extremely Rare 1876 Jugate Political Bandana. 1876 was the year of America's Centennial, and this theme is found on many campaign items of that year. Like its Hayes & Wheeler counterpart, this bandana pictures the candidates along with the Father of our Country, and proclaims them the "Centennial Democratic Candidates for 1876." Perhaps because of the Centennial connection, items from this election have always been highly prized by collectors. This bandana is a particularly rare example. While it is listed by Collins in Threads of History (page 213, no. 455), the one pictured in that volume is part of the Smithsonian's collection, and it is our impression that at most one or two other examples may be known in the hobby. Overall display condition is very good, as photo shows. There are several small holes or tears which detract minimally, and two more significant edge tears at 3:00 which have been somewhat repaired as the bandana was professionally mounted. Minor light aging also detracts minimally. 24" x 28".

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
