1864"Union" Patriotic Civil War Silk Ribbon
March 16, 1864-Dated, Union Patriotic Silk Ribbon, NY, Choice Near Mint.
Superb "Union" Civil War Silk Ribbon, measuring 8.25" x 1.75", with a figure of a woman beside a Grecian style column with the word "Union" on a banner around it. The ribbon reads, "Welcome to the 56th Regt., N.Y.S. Veteran Volunteers, March 16, 1864." These ribbons were given to those who reenlisted in this particular regiment, so only a relatively few were made and of these, a tiny fraction survived. This one is in fine condition, with only one horizontal crease towards the top. A rare type and lovely for display.
