Grant, Ulysses S., Mourning Ribbon
Stunning Grant Mourning Ribbon
Ulysses S. Grant Mourning Ribbon; black with silver lettering and devices; the most recognizable being the laurel wreath, a Victorian mourning symbol for Victory and eternity. Also featuring a chevron cut at bottom. Quite unusual bearing a true albumen photo, 1-inch round.
Excellent; two tears do not hinder the beauty of this particular mourning ribbon.
