Matched Pair of 1904 Presidential Campaign Watch-Fobs

1904, Two campaign watch fobs, Theodore Roosevelt & Charles Warren Fairbanks, Plus Alton Brooks Parker & Henry Gassaway Davis, Choice Extremely Fine.
This lot consists of two 5" long, dangling fobs in four components suspended from a clip: one for the Democratic standard-bearers Alton Brooks Parker and Henry Gassaway Davis; and one for the Republican nominees Theodore Roosevelt and Charles Warren Fairbanks. The Parker example, with a worn gold tone, declares "Our Country for the Masses and Not for the Classes High Tariff Breeds Trusts Do They Help You" and shows Thomas Jefferson at the top. The T.R. specimen, with a silvered finish, shows the GOP elephant at top and proclaims "Trade Follows the Flag Protection, Prosperity and Panama." Both examples show some typical rubbing and wear. No doubt, exceedingly rare. (2 items.)
