    James M. Cox: Classic "Best Ever" 1¾" Celluloid. One of the most prized of all political celluloids for its marvelous design and rarity. Not wishing to offend customers of either political persuasion, the issuer, a Chicago clothier, had them produced for both 1920 presidential candidates. Originally a mirror-back watch fob, it has had the metal loop at the top carefully filed away by a previous collector-owner who preferred not to display it with the metal projection showing. There are some scratches and scuffing, visible only at an angle and upon close examination. A small area encompassing the word "Best" is ever-so-slightly flattened. The colors are exceptionally vibrant and the celluloid displays high gloss. The "eye appeal" is excellent.
