Description

    Hancock & English: Rare 1880 Jugate Badge. Paper "My Choice" jugate affixed to tin shield. A pin, now missing, was clearly originally affixed to the reverse as manufactured. At least one jugate badge has been made for every ticket since 1860, and Hancock & English is one of the rarest (once considered virtually on a par with the Cox & Roosevelt, but more examples of the Hancock & English have been discovered over the last couple of decades). This is a very rare variant; we can recall seeing only one other. Condition is basically excellent, considering the nature of the construction. There are some minor and unobtrusive spots, but the paper is intact save for some utterly trivial roughness, possibly as made, along part of the bottom edge. Unlisted by both Hake and Sullivan. From the collection of veteran lobbyist Jack Gibson (APIC# 240), who recalls that the legendary J. Doyle Dewitt tried any number of cash and trade offers to pry this rare item from his possession! 25mm x 28mm.
