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 1¼" 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".

    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.
