President. Adams "Watchamacallit"!

Submitted by Francine: I have in front of me an old Iron Rest with "PRES. ADAMS" and "9-19" with some sort of a makers mark with an "m" at the end of it.

Cleveland Stevenson Campaign Ribbon

Submitted by Pat: I am attaching a photo of a Cleveland/Stevenson campaign ribbon I came across while cataloging some post-Civil War regimental reunions ribbons of my great-grandfather's. He served in the Tennessee 20th Regiment and Peter Turney was a colonel in the 1st Tennessee Regiment who was elected governor of TN. Looks like he ran on the same ribbon since his name was inked in:) If you can help Pat with additional information or value. Please click on the comment button. Thanks!
