    Description

    Extremely Rare and Significant 1852 Political Campaign Handbill for Winfield Scott Scott is one of the toughest 19th century candidates for whom to find purely political (as opposed to Mexican War) items other than a few common tokens. This handout is in the form of an extra from the American and Messenger newspaper, and carries a telegraphed report of the vote at the end of the second ballot of the Whig national convention: "SCOTT 148...Fillmore 118...Webster 26." Hand-dated June 21, 1852. Below the vote report is pro-Scott text, ending with "NINE TIMES NINE CHEERS FOR THE GLORIOUS OLD SOLDIER WHO IS TO LEAD US TO VICTORY." A great, really unique political relic! Minor "aging," but overall in fine shape. 3.5" x 6.75".
