    Description

    William Jennings Bryan: Elusive Mechanical Bicycle. This perennial collector favorite was inspired by the bicycling craze of the 1890s. It measures 1 ¼" square and has a photograph of the Democratic nominees of 1896, Bryan and Sewall. Perched on the bicycle seat is a rider labeled "16 to 1" affixed to a spring mechanism. Voters choosing this bike were advised it was "Warranted For Four Years". The condition is excellent. This is the Hake Book plate example.
