    Description

    William Jennings Bryan: A Coin Bank Depicting Him in a Rather Embarrassing Pose. This painted composition bank probably dates from the 1908 campaign, as it depicts a bald and mature Bryan. Even in this posture he strikes an orator's pose, gripping his left lapel. Quite possibly this item was put out by political opponents in reaction to a similar piece showing a Republican supporter defecating a gold coin! Perhaps not in the best of taste, but certainly one of the more interesting political items we have encountered. Excellent condition. Height 5.125"
