    Description

    Alfred M. Landon: 1936 Republican Campaign Cape. If you envisioned yourself as a comic book superhero in 1936, you may have worn this 23" x 37" paper "cape". It features portraits of the Republican nominees, Landon and Knox, superimposed on sunflowers, and comes complete with its mailing envelope. It may have served double-duty as a Halloween costume, as well. This highly graphic piece of ephemera was never worn and is in pristine condition. We seem to recall one other example from the personal collection of Alf Landon. This may, in fact, be the identical piece.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
