We would have thought this design would be listed in Fischer/Sullivan but it is not. This is very important because this ribbon is much scarcer than you would think. In fact it is quite rare. All of the Fillmore jugate designs listed in Fischer are side by side jugates (3) and there are no listed stacked jugate designs for this pair. About 8” overall so is a little larger than normal. Strong black ink impression and has a nice sharp result. Scatter light toning but the display presentation is very strong. Quote from a speech at the top. Important artifact because of the jugate display and direct link to the National American Ticket. By 1856, Fillmore's Whig Party had ceased to exist, having fallen apart due to dissension over the slavery issue, and especially the Kansas–Nebraska Act of 1854. Fillmore refused to join the new Republican Party, where many former Whigs, including Abraham Lincoln, had found refuge. Instead, Fillmore joined the anti-immigrant, anti-Catholic American Party, the political organ of the Know-Nothing movement. He ran in the election of 1856 as the party's presidential candidate, attempting to win a nonconsecutive second term as President (a feat accomplished only once in American politics, by Grover Cleveland). His running mate was Andrew Jackson Donelson, nephew of former president Andrew Jackson. Fillmore and Donelson finished third, carrying only the state of Maryland and its eight electoral votes; but he won 21.6% of the popular vote, one of the best showings ever by a Presidential third-party candidate. Estimate: $2,500-3,000
