    William Jennings Bryan: Highly Desirable Single Portraits Color Eclipse Pin. Ultra rare 1 1/4" button showing Bryan on a silver "planet" with American flags eclipsing McKinley on a gold "planet" with American flags. Referring to Election Day, it is titled "Total Eclipse Nov. 6." It was made by the Crescent Art Gallery in Kansas City, the same company that made the double-jugate eclipse button we are also offering in the sale. There is one small, faint stain visible at the extreme left edge, of no consequence, and some surface scratches. There are no cracks or foxing or other significant defects. We are only aware of three examples to come to auction in the last thirty years. A very nice specimen with excellent graphics and color.

    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.
