Description

    William McKinley: Great Hobby Horse Pin. As collectors, we are members of a hobby. But, in 1900, McKinley had a hobby, too. He is shown riding a hobby horse on this clever 2" button titled: "My 'Hobby' A Winner". Dressed in toddler's clothes, he wears his Napoleon hat. In the race against Bryan, whose image appears on a matching button, McKinley did indeed come in a winner. The term "classic" may be overused, but it really applies with this button. It is charming, colorful, graphic and clever, all at once! This example has some very minor surface abrasions which must be noted, but detract minimally. The colors are vibrant and there is none of the staining which has afflicted most specimens we've seen over the years... an example which would be hard to improve upon.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
