1892 Pair Of Benjamin Harrison Home Market Ribbon Badges For Sale
This lot consists of two ribbon badges from the 1892 campaign. The first is 5.75” long and has a silver-colored hanger at the top with a ram on a bar reading “Home Market.” There is a red, white, and blue-striped ribbon hanging below, with a celluloid plaque attached by weaving the ribbon through slots. This thin celluloid has jugate portraits of Benjamin Harrison and Whitelaw Reid. In faint lettering beneath the portraits is: “Copyright 1892 / Home Market Club / Boston.” This is listed as Hake BH-3129.
The second badge has the same Home Market/Ram hanger, except this one is gold-colored. This badge is 6.5” long and has the same red, white, and blue-striped ribbon hanging below. There is also an attached diagonal white strip with “Reception Committee” in gold lettering.
The Home Market Club was a national organization that promoted a protective tariff to ensure the Home Market for goods would be supplied by Home Producers. The tariff issue (Free Trade vs the Protective Tariff) was a major campaign issue in 1892. Benjamin Harrison lost this campaign for reelection.
The badges are both in very good condition, as seen in the photos. There is a break at one end of one of the celluloid strips on the jugate plaque where the ribbon is woven through. Please take a look at the photos to see this.
