This rarely encountered design type President Abraham Lincoln Mourning Ribbon has rich Black Print on White Silk, with added Black Silk “Mourning” Borders at both left and right. It measures an unusually large 7" x 3.75" with a large vignette image of the slain President's Portrait, above center. At top, a legend reads: “Whatever shall appear to be God’s will, I will do.” Below Lincoln’s portrait is “U.L. (Union League) Albany Council No.1 and another legend reads, “Let us resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain.” Listed as AL-M24 in Sullivan and Fischer’s, “American Political Ribbons and Ribbon Badges 1825-1981,” BUT NOT ILLUSTRATED THERE. We’ve never seen or offered another, and its not illustrated in the reference book, so this must be extremely rare.
