Red, white, and blue striped silk ribbon with a round, dangling medallion. The medallion features the figure of Abraham Lincoln dressed in a loose-fitting uniform in low relief. "Centennial Celebration, Lincoln the Soldier, Dixon, Illinois, 1830-1930" encircles Lincoln. An airplane is embossed on the reverse and the words "Dedication of Municipal Airport, Dixon, Illinois, 1930" are found directly below. An adhesive label on the back reads "1028." The silk ribbon is torn in two.
