Description
40 Years of Presidential Campaign Pinbacks, from McKinley to Landon, 110+ Pcs!

A sensational collection of over 110 mostly presidential pinback buttons, lapel pins, and campaign button tabs, including many jugates, spanning forty years of American political history, from the campaigns of William McKinley and Garret Hobart (1896), to Alfred Landon and Frank Knox (1936). The campaign memorabilia is displayed in seven horizontal rows 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.

Of especial interest are the three-dimensional buttons and pins, including two Progressive Party "bull moose" pins

an enameled elephant form pin emblazoned "Hoover and Curtis"

and numerous sunflower form, multi-media pins promoting Al Landon. Expected wear throughout commensurate with age, else near fine.
