    Description

    Superb Collection of Seven Different Official Badges From the 1924 Republican National Convention Made of heavy gilt brass, bronze and white metal. Included are very desirable "National Committee Secretary Convention," "Chaplain," and "Tally Clerk," and "telegraph operator" varieties, each of which would obviously have been made in limited numbers, as well as more plentiful "press," "Delegate," and "alternate" types. All are in beautiful condition but for deterioration of the red, white and blue ribbon backing the "National Committee" example. National Convention Badges form a highly specialized sub-hobby in which we claim no great expertise, but we cannot recall ever having seen several of these varieties. From the Larry Krug collection. Average length 4.5 inches, not counting ribbon backing.
