OUR CANDIDATES, FILLMORE AND DONNELSON (sic) ... MARCH 4, 1857

SKU 05863B
Silk ribbon promoting Millard Fillmore for president and Andrew Donelson (misspelled "DONNELSON) for vice president, 1856.  2 3/8 x 6 1/8".  Very faint discoloration at the top and bottom edges detract little from this rare ribbon - the first we recall ever seeing.  Note the optimistic dates on the bottom which represent what would have been Fillmore's Inauguration on MARCH 4, 1857.  It was James Buchanan who would take the Presidential chair on that date.
