    Amazing Collection of Advertising Flyers for Early Political Items These advertising brochures are very popular with collectors, and this is the most interesting and diverse group we have ever seen in one place! Thirty different items, each professionally shrink-wrapped. Sizes from 5" to 24". Please note that none of these is an ad cut from a newspaper or magazine; these are all actual manufacturer's literature. We cannot possibly list these in adequate detail, but here are some highlights: Large Ohio Cutlery brochure with picturing Cleveland - Stevenson jugate and McKinley for Senator knives, and many others; multicolor 18" x 14" poster for Harrison-Reid street banners (we have seen this style for other tickets, but not for this one. Alone easily a $300-500 item); large F. W. Miller flyer picturing Bryan mechanical skeleton, Teddy Roosevelt open-mouth mechanical, and many other great items, some of which we have never seen "in person"; large 1896 flyer picturing several dozen familiar button designs; huge, poster-size foldout Miller flyer with numerous 1900 button designs and other types of items; large Aluminum Novelty Co. broadside with McKinley and Bryan match safes, unusual mechanical pins, and more; great W. Coates flyer for "The McKinley Tin Napoleon Hat" with image of McKinley wearing one!; William H. Horstmann flyer for parade uniforms, including McKinley and Bryan belts; Apple and Co. flyer for parade headgear, including caps and helmets with candidate names and portraits (one has a brass-framed McKinley - Hobart jugate as an emblem, permanently settling the discussion over the intended use of this item, pictured as McKinley-1 on page 14 of Hake's 1896-1972 book; a multi-page, bold red, white and blue booklet for political parade uniforms and gear from United States Campaign Equipment Manufacturing Co.; flyer with large illustrations of 3-D coffins containing McKinley and Bryan images; Cuban Revolution patriotic items; and so much more! All in great condition. An instant collection of this desirable subject matter! See our web site for complete photo listing.
