Stunning Possibly Unique 1908 W. J. Bryan - John Kern 1 1/4" Jugate This is the actual plate specimen pictured in the original 1896-1972 Hake book, page 36, and we have never seen another example. It was made by an obscure manufacturer, the Pioneer Man 'F' G Co. of New York. A full red, white and blue version of this design also prohibitively rare, was also manufactured for Theodore Roosevelt - Charles Fairbanks in 1904. It is unclear whether this Bryan is a black and white 1908 "knock-off" of that design. Condition is beautiful; two small marks in the field around 3:00 are in the printing. For accuracy we note a few very trivial, light surface scratches, detectable only when the light hits at a certain angle. Almost certainly a literal "once in a lifetime opportunity."
