    Description

    William Jennings Bryan and William Taft: Milk Glass "Top Hat" Campaign Coin Bank, made for the 1908 campaign. Often seen incomplete, the important paper and metal insert for the hat's opening is lithographed with portraits of the candidates. A slit in the paper makes this a most rare and desirable still bank. Here the Bryan has only light staining but the Taft insert shows foxing and roughness along the edges. Tough to find complete, here we have a pair being sold as one lot. From the U. I. "Chick" and Cecilia Harris Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
