We were please to be able to offer a jugate Polk ribbon in out last auction. We are indeed fortunate to follow that up with an even more impressive Polk jugate ribbon but this one is also a coattail ribbon. It is interesting to note that there are 3 Polk and Shunk coattail jugate ribbons listed in Sullivan but none are this exact design. The placement of the names Polk, Dallas above the portraits is unique to this jugate design. We have never seen this ribbon before and cannot find any example selling at auction over the last 2 decades or so. The Polk jugate ribbon sold in our last auction well exceeded $6,000 and we think this ribbon desires equal respect. Tacked to a thin backing board similar to mat board. We believe this can be removed with conservation effort or left in place. This lot has a reserve less than the estimate. Estimate: $6,500-7,500
