[Flag campaign banner for John C. Breckinridge and Joseph Lane]
Complete Explanation:
A proof specimen on paper for a campaign banner for Southern Democratic presidential candidate John C. Breckinridge. The banner consists of an American flag pattern printed in reverse. It was probably intended as a specimen, for marketing purposes, of a larger banner having the portrait of the candidate, similar to no. 1860-15. It is overprinted with the words, "An American Flag with Portrait of John C. Breckenridge, encircled by 33 Stars in a Blue Field, bearing the names, President, John C. Breckenridge; Vice President, Gen. Jos. Lane."
