This lot is for a collection of historical memorabilia including retro vintage reproduction political campaign buttons, vintage stamps, and an antique company medal with ribbon.
The political buttons are circa 1970s, and come with cards explaining the political climate. The campaigns include:
– 1896-McKinley (“Free Silver”), 1908-Taft (Bryan-Kern),
– 1912-Wilson (Progressive), 1916-Wilson (God Bless Wilson),
– 1920-Harding (Roosevelt-Cox),1924-Coolidge (Coolidge-Dawes),
– 1968-Nixon (Nixen-Agnew). The 1924 pin is without the card back.
The 1896 pin has a few dents, although the surface is unbroken.
The stamps include a vermilion 2 cent Jackson stamp, first used circa 1870s, a 1964 5-cent Shakespeare stamp, and a 10-cent 1969 Man-on-the-Moon commemorative stamp.
The medal with blue ribbon, never used, is from a company in Aurora, IL, called Western Wheeled Scraper Co. The company dates from 1877 to 1934, later becoming Austin-Western Inc.
