Abraham Lincoln Memorial Mourning Ribbon ~ Weeping Columbia ~ 1866 For Sale

Abraham Lincoln Memorial Mourning Ribbon ~ Weeping Columbia ~ 1866

Issued in the wake of Abraham Lincoln's assassination, this is a silk memorial/mourning ribbon.

Produced by Jordan Tchopp in Brasel, Switzerland, 1866.

It measures 5" wide x 10" long.

Wonderful details including:

*A cameo of Lincoln. I communicated with the Curator of the Lincoln collection at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Il and learnedthis image was derivedfrom the Feb. 1864 photoby Anthony Berger (as formerly seen on the $5 bill).

* An eagle perched on top with an olive branch in its beak and arrows in its talons

*A red, white and blue shield with 1776 Union Forever 1865 banner

* And what I love most about this ribbon, weeping Columbia.

The inscription above Mr. Lincoln's head was takenfrom his second inaugural address "With malice toward none, with charity for all."

A wonderful piece of American/Lincoln history.

As you can see in my photos, it has condition issues. A previous owner stapled it to cardboard. In addition to the staple holes in each corner, there is staining, a crease along the bottom and a hole in the left lower corner.

Shipping quote is First Class delivery, but other options are available to the winning buyer.
