Description

Light pink political ribbon. All text and central image stamped in black. "Abraham Lincoln" and a bust of Lincoln comprises the top half of the ribbon. The lower half of the ribbon is all text that reads, "Vice President, Hannibal Hamlin. Sandwich Lincoln Club." There is a small floral design between "Hannibal Hamlin" and "Sandwich." The word "Sandwich" is in larger, fancier text. The two sides of the ribbon are done in looped silk threads. The top and bottom edges are frayed.
