Description

William Jennings Bryan: 1896 Pasteboard Coffin. This 4" cardboard novelty shows Bryan in his coffin after his defeat at the polls in 1896. Two coffin lids read: "W.J.B. Nov. 4, 1896. 16 to 1 Did It". There is a hole on the top part for suspension. The top part became detached at some time and has been taped back together. We are not exactly sure how this worked and whether there was a mechanical aspect to it. It would make a nice "go-with" for the mechanical coffin studs issued that year.
