Description

    Roosevelt & Johnson: Beautiful Jugate Badge for this 1912 "Bull Moose" Ticket. Although technically a third-party ticket, Roosevelt and Johnson outpolled the regular Republican ticket of Taft & Sherman in 1912. Accordingly, most hobbyists, even those who eschew third-party items, actively seek items from this upstart party. While a number of Roosevelt & Johnson jugate varieties exist, all are rare, and most are thought to have been manufacturers' samples or limited-distribution items such as the present example put out by the Progressive Party of Wisconsin.

    A pristine 1ΒΌ" celluloid is suspended from a red silk ribbon reading "Wisconsin State Convention Progressive Party 1912". To our experience, this is an unusual color; usually these ribbons are dark blue. The ribbon itself is also in superb condition, which is very rarely seen. All Roosevelt & Johnson jugate items are rare, of course, and this choice specimen is an ideal representative example. Overall length 3.5".
