    Most Unusual William McKinley Badge with Abraham Lincoln We are all familiar with the 1 1/2" 1900 button design picturing McKinley with Lincoln, but this version is quite unusual. It was a very common practice during this era to name local Republican groups after Party heroes, however, particularly Lincoln and James Blaine, and even John Fremont (the first Republican Presidential candidate). Interestingly, U. S. Grant seems to have been ignored, probably indicating that his name had not been rehabilitated from the scandals which plagued his administration. This striking badge features a 1 3/4" convex celluloid, and is in absolutely mint condition. Overall 3" x 5".

    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.
