Interesting and beautiful collection of President-themed paper ephemera, including four postcards and a cigar band.  All present very well, with bright colors and vivid detail.  Collection includes the following:

1) Two C. 1913 woven silk postcards, one of Theodore Roosevelt, one of Woodrow Wilson.  The Roosevelt postcard is a technical VG/EX due to lower left corner wear but presents much better, the postcard's cloth insert very clean and unblemished, the color of Teddy's purple tie shining like a beacon.  The Wilson postcard is closer to a G/VG, largely due to wear around the mount and corners.  Neither postcard has been postally used, and both are quite beautiful.  2) Two "Presidents" postcards, one circa 1908 and the other 1909.  The 1908 postcard features portraits of "Our 25 Presidents," each oval portrait surrounding George Washington.  Grade is technically G, though it presents much better, due to wear around the gold borders, staining on the reverse at the corners (likely from mounting in a photo album), and pencil marking on the reverse.  The second postcard, very similar, features "Our 25 Presidents" each in an oval portrait, with a portrait of "Our 26th President, Wm. H. Taft 1909" added to the reverse.  Also grading a technical G, the card presents extremely well, save for pencil writing on the reverse.  Despite the writing, the postcard has not been mailed.  3) Presidential cigar band of Rutherford B. Hayes, grading NM with spectacular color and no wear to the ornate gold and red border.

Five interesting items, each chronicling the country's rich political history.
