    Description

    William McKinley or William Jennings Bryan: Fabulous Multicolor Mechanical 1896 Election Card. 5 1/2" square two-piece stiff paper board titled "Political Object Lessons". The wheel can be rotated so that the voter can see the possible outcome of the election. When McKinley appears, there are three scenes of prosperity. When Bryan appears, we see scenes of economic desolation. Flags, shields and appropriate slogans populate the spokes of the wheel. Part of the word "Political" missing from the revolving disc, but it has been neatly restored. Light toning to board with minor vertical crease along right side. A really neat item! We sold the Merrill Berman example in February 2015 for $3500.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
