campaign ribbon showing portrait images of candidates for President and Vice President of the USA
There can hence be no doubt this ribbon is of Stevens manufacture.
 

This campaign ribbon was on behalf of the Republican challengers, Benjamin Harrison (for President) and Levi P Morton (as Vice President). They were successful, against the incumbant Democrat President Cleveland & Thurman.

It is believed that Stevens also produced the campaign ribbon for Cleveland & Thurman, and this is recorded as sb1548.
