Description
Lyndon B. Johnson Campaign Pinbacks & Memorabilia, 60+ Pcs

A wide-ranging collection of over 60 pieces of campaign memorabilia relating to the 1964 presidential race between Democratic Party nominee Lyndon B. Johnson and Republican Party nominee Barry M. Goldwater. Pieces include pinback buttons and jugates, flashers, ribbons, lapel pins, coattail buttons, and campaign button tabs. Displayed in an aesthetically pleasing montage on a black felt-covered mat measuring 24.375" x 16.5". The lot comes with an optional wooden and glass showcase behind which the mat was originally displayed. There are many gems in this completely unpicked collection waiting to be discovered! Provenance: From the lifelong collection of a Greenwich, Connecticut gentleman.

The more unusual and three-dimensional items include: "LBJ, All the Way" campaign ribbon topped by a miniature of LBJ's trademark white cowboy hat

a diamond-shaped gold-finished and blue enamel "LBJ" lapel pin

and a coin form takeaway urging South Dakotans to support the Democratic ticket. Campaign memorabilia represented special interest groups, such as students

Spanish speakers

members of the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations)

New Yorkers

Indianans

Alaskans

and South Dakotans. Expected wear throughout commensurate with age including isolated fading, else near fine.

Candidates whose images or names are featured include:
- Lyndon B. Johnson & Hubert Humphrey (1968)
- Barry Goldwater & William E. Miller (1964)
- Robert F. Kennedy for U.S. Senator from New York (1964)
- Matthew E. Welsh for Governor of Indiana (1964)
- John F. Lindley for Governor of South Dakota (1964)

A preliminary examination revealed the following highlights:
- LBJ cowboy hat ribbon sold for $100 in 2017
- "Johnson wants Kennedy" button sold for $56 in 2020
- "Fashion for '64" button sold for $57 in 2013
- "New York Students for Johnson, Humphrey, Kennedy in '64" button sold for $35 in 2017

**PLEASE NOTE: This lot will require third party shipping due to the delicate nature of how the buttons are mounted.
