    Description

    1908 Bryan & Kern Lithographed Tin Mechanical Badge. The mate to the Taft & Sherman version offered elsewhere in this sale. Excellent shape but for an edge chip above Kern's portrait, and some rusting in that confined area. 2" x 1.9".

    Interestingly, most if not all known examples of these mechanical pins came from one find, a bag of them stuffed among the ceiling pipes in the basement of an Indianapolis Commercial building some years ago. From the Norman Loewenstern Collection.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
