Extremely Rare Large Calvin Coolidge Oval Pin Listed in the original 1896-1972 Hake book as COO-88, it is actually a 1920 Vice Presidential item, rather than a 1924 issue, as it exactly matches a Warren Harding version, HAR-71. Some hobbyists have at times confused these with another series, issued in both round and oval shapes, showing the presidents up through Herbert Hoover, and presumably issued around 1930. The present example, however, is a completely different animal. The Harding mate, from a different collection, fetched over $1,500 in the Slater's Americana July 2004 sale. It would not surprise us if this Coolidge mate surpassed that level because of its distinguished provenance and Vice Presidential connection (a popular collecting specialty), and because historically Coolidge material has performed better in the marketplace than Harding. Great condition. Height 2 3/4 inches.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
