    Hancock & English: A Key 1880 Jugate Badge. For anyone trying to complete a run of photographic jugate pins, this is certainly one of the most difficult, especially in this top condition. Forty years ago the Hancock & English jugate was considered on a par with the Cox & Roosevelt. However, over the years more examples have been found, and the price of the Hancock item has not kept pace with the Cox & Roosevelt. In point of fact, the known population of both is probably in the same range: between thirty and fifty examples. But of course, there are far more collectors of celluloids than of pre-1896 badges.

    The present copy is in near mint condition, with photos as bright, strong, and clear as could possibly be found. Attached by the original pin to what would appear to be an original maroon silk ribbon. Height 1.625".
