    Description

    Grant & Colfax: Extremely Rare Pair of Choice Unlisted 1868 Shell Badges. Diameter of each 32 mm, and made of silvered brass. One shows Grant & Colfax on opposite sides, while the other (USG-1868-20) has draped flags and the slogan "The Morning of the Republic 1868." Clearly by the same manufacturer, we have never encountered these beautiful varieties before. Proof-like surfaces, elegantly toned. Original suspension loops at top of each. Ex. Andrew C. Zabriskie Collection. From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.
