Comments:
It is not known how this bookmark is signed. I am however reliably informed by members of the Stevengraph Collectors Association that this ribbon is of Stevens manufacture.

This campaign ribbon was on behalf of the incumbant Democrat President Grover Cleveland with Allen G Thurman as Vice President. They were however unsuccessful against the Republican challengers Harrison & Morton.

It is believed that Stevens also produced the campaign ribbon for Harrison & Morton, and this is recorded as sb1552.
