DescriptionSought-after 1 1/4" 1900 "Eclipse" Button Rarity One of the most unique of all political button designs, it is a play on an eclipse of the sun. They were made both with W. J. Bryan eclipsing William McKinley and McKinley eclipsing Bryan, the present example being the latter type. Legend reads: "Partial Eclipse will be Total in November." Perhaps a half-dozen variants by assorted manufacturers appeared during the campaign, attesting to the popularity of the concept. Yet rather strangely all are rare. This one is choice and "minty" but for a minor rim stain at 12:30, not visible from the front of the button. One of the cleaner examples we have seen of this variety, which tends to come with a little foxing.
