    IMPORTANT 1 ¼" W.J. BRYAN BUTTON RARITY. This great design depicts Bryan shaking hands with the American Laborer. " Unitied We Stand, Divided We Fall…No Trust" above, with the "16 to 1" slogan ( Bryan’s proposed silver to gold ratio) below. This choice copy was formerly in the renouned U.I. "Chick" Harris Collection and fetched $3700 at auction in 2000, when that collection was being dispersed. Condition is basically superb, especially for a sepia button of this era. For strictest accuracy we note a tiny light spot near the bottom rim at 5:30. This "defect" could be used as an excuse not to buy this example, but not as a valid reason. It is a gorgeous copy.
