    Description

    William Jennings Bryan: One of the Most Sought-after "Cartoon Button" Rarities With Obscure Shepard Photo Co., Buttons And Badges Back Paper. This wonderful design tells quite a story! Bryan is handing a copy of the U.S. Constitution to Uncle Sam, who seeks to plant the flag on "Puerto Rico." "The Constitution shall follow the flag," declares Bryan earnestly. Meanwhile the (imperialist) McKinley, wearing a crown, is being devoured by a monster labeled "Trusts." All this on a 1¼" button! A well centered beauty with only a handful of examples known.

    The resulting auction of my property overwhelmed me. I want to thank Tom Slater and the Heritage team for a very satisfactory experience and profitable result with my historical consignment.
