Still pretty cool. Wife and I went antiquing and I stumbled on this. It was described as a campaign handkerchief.
Amazing that it’s lasted this long. Neat piece of Americana. Figured I’d share.
Looks to be in great shape.
Just this once..... unless you've got more.
Wrap a coin in it and see how it tones.

That's great! I love the jugate images from the political campaigns of that time!
I really like that. Thanks for posting!
Here's two pillow covers I have -

I don’t own these, I just took pictures of them because I like them.
A very neat item!
I like it. Years ago I opened up an old book that belonged to my grandfather and there was a campaign ribbon from the 1876 presidential election in it. It was probably used as a bookmark. Not in good condition but a nice keepsake. You never know what you might find.
I have never seen a campaign handkerchief before.... and that is in amazing condition. Cheers, RickO
That handkerchief is nothing to sneeze at!
