    John W. Davis: Mate to the 4" Celluloid "Deeds not Words" Coolidge Variety. Like its Republican counterpart, this dramatic piece is the chosen centerpiece for nearly all advanced collectors who can afford to purchase an example. Like the Coolidge version, this item is almost always found with scattered soft surface bumps, and the present copy is no exception. Most are located at the very top, with one on the edge of Davis's right shoulder. The surface is otherwise bright and reflective, and the condition overall is well above average for this for this variety. There is one small, very fine cut in the celluloid in the field near the edge at eleven o'clock, which is detected only by turning the button back and forth to catch the light at the proper angle. A very pleasing specimen.
