Scarce Ribbon from the 1901-1902 South Carolina and West Indian International Exposition, which was also known as the Charleston Exposition. The ribbon was worn on Pennsylvania Day at the Exposition, April 16, 1902. The exposition ran from December 1st 1901 through May 1st 1902, so Pennsylvania Day was held just two weeks before the Exposition ended. The ribbon is silk, 9" by 2 1/4" in size, and in pretty nice condition. The upper left corner has a 1/3" tear, and t is a 1" brown discoloration on the back, in the same vicinity, which shows lightly on the front. T is also small price tag sticker gum on the back, almost invisible from the front, and a couple of small separations, hardly noticable. I am probably making the condition of the ribbon sound worse than it really is, but I believe in accurately describing my ebay items. Take a close look at my picture, or ask a question. A scarce item from a popular celebration. Buyer to pay $5.60 priority mail fee, plus actual insurance cost. California residents must pay 8.25% sales tax. Seven day return privilege if not as described. We accept PayPal.
