Description

    Taft & Sherman: Gorgeous "Radiating Eagle" Classic Age Jugate. A 1¼" celluloid pinback featuring the successful 1908 Republican standard-bearers, superimposed on American flags and a shield surmounted by a "radiating eagle". The most beautiful campaign buttons ever produced were made in 1908 and 1912 by the American Arts Works division of the Meek Company of Coshocton, Ohio. These designs constitute the Classic Age of politicals. Appears minty, but we mention for accuracy's sake two "specks"- one on the extreme left edge and another below Taft's portrait, as well as a miniscule cut on the bottom curl on the letters "OMP" of "COMPANY". These rarely appear on the market and typically suffer from foxing. This is one of the better examples known.

    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.
