    Description

    William Jennings Bryan: Front Porch 16-to-1 Real Photo Button. Great 1 1/2" deep sepia real photo button showing Bryan and some neighbors posed on the front porch. Inscribed "16 To 1", it purportedly shows sixteen silver people (not counting Bryan) and one gold bug, per the back paper issued by Tomlinson Brothers of Hannibal, Missouri. We don't know who the errant gold bug is... he or she is not identified. Excellent condition and quite scarce.
