William Jennings Bryan-Kern Celluloid Button
Item #: NEW-0016417

Click image to enlarge
This is a poor specimen of a very rare button which sells for $1,000 and more.  I feel it would still augment a Bryan display or at least hold a place when a better example might be found.  A high resolution scan can be sent to anyone interested so it could be better viewed.  There is celluloid crazing primarily on the left hand side but there are some other smaller areas.

Brass Pin-Taft or Teddy Roosevelt-Ribbon
Item #: NEW-0016342

Click image to enlarge
I've had this for many years and have given up trying to figure out whether it is a Teddy Roosevelt or William Taft.  It measures two inches and is affixed in some way to a large white silk ribbon.  The figure in standing in a chair and there are two letters P and C.  A Facebook friend suggested it might stand for Presidential chair which is possible.  This item was purchased along with ribbons related to the visit of President Taft to New Orleans and other items as well including some Teddy Roosevelt buttons.  I have waited over the years to see another but since I haven't I must conclude that it is an unlisted, unknown campaign item.  The figure is hefty so it could be Teddy Roosevelt or William Taft.  The eyes are so big that they look like glasses to me so I lean on the Teddy Roosevelt identification.

Teddy Roosevelt Visits Peabody-Nashville-Photo
Item #: NEW-0016341

Click image to enlarge
This is a rare photograph which shows President Roosevelt visiting what used to be the Western Military Institute in Nashville Tennessee.  There is a rare postcard that was made from this photograph which says that he is visiting Peabody College.  At any rate the building is still there.  It was made by Thuss, a famous Nashville photographer.  The photo itself measures 10 and a half by 8 and a half inches but is mounted on a board which measures about 15 by 12 inches.  A thin paper frame has been mounted to the board.  There is some light staining in the upper right sky area and a vertical line that runs down the left side of the photo but you can't see it unless you rotate it under a light.  There is also a light line that criss crosses it but again you only can see it when rotating the photo.  Other light staining which is barely noticeable.

Teddy Roosevelt Visits Nashville-1909 PC-Censored View
Item #: NEW-0016250

Click image to enlarge
Here is a view of Teddy Roosevelt visiting the tomb of Andrew Jackson during his visit to the Hermitage in Nashville.  The significance of this postcard is that an earlier view showed some black dignitaries who were cropped out in this reprint and replaced with a bush (also at the expense of the poor guy in the rear). Another honoree was replaced by a stone log that had previously been in the graveyard. This visit followed Teddy Roosevelt's historic invitation to Booker T Washington to dine with him in the White House which offended many Southerners. Also pictured was Congressman John Wesley Gaines and Mrs. Marry C Dorris. Please views the scan to see the condition on the card which has edge and corner wear

Photograph-Teddy Roosevelt on the Convention Floor-1904
Item #: NEW-0013787

Click image to enlarge
This is a mounted albumen which measures 6 by 6 and a half inches.  There are some condition problems: 1 Chunk out of bottom left hand corner, 2.  Stain on the board at the top left hand corner area, 3. a punched hole in Teddy Roosevelt's right hat rim, 4. a slit through the man standing on the far right which goes through the pole of the New York delegation sign, and 5. Dotted stains which run diagonally through the seated balded man's face to almost the end of the photograph.  Priced high because I paid a lot for it.  I think it's a great photograph despite the problems.  The scan looks a little darker than the real appearance.  The paper seems to read the Commercial Advertiser.

Paypal will not be accepted on this item though payment plans can be arranged.

This is a rare button that has been in my collection for many years.  A friend/picker found a small cache of these in an antique store so long ago that I can't remember when.  Some of the buttons were heavily foxed and he sold the rest to someone who tried to talk him out of saving this one for me.  He said he picked out the best one for me but I don't know about that. The button measures two and one fourth inches.  Note the dots in the black field which are in the printing.  The ones on his tie is a polka dot tie since I have another TR button currently on my site where he is wearing a tie with spots.  There are the usual scratches that one sees on an old button visible under a light and under magnification.  There is one little area which is deeper but that's all.  It looks great to the eye.

Item #: NEW-0012087

Click image to enlarge
Attractive one and a quarter inch celluloid that looks like a button but is actually a clicker.  This is only the second one I have ever seen and the last one was many many years ago and went very high.  Looks perfect to the eye but a strong loupe, a 10X one, shows quite a few defects.  I don't recommend anyone use such strong magnification as you will see imperfections. The exception of course is when you are buying buttons.  There are some pin pricks in the celluloid and many deep indentations and some light scratches. Some foxing to the left edge of Parker's oval  and some small grey spotting under that. I can send a high resolution scan to anyone interested.

Teddy Roosevelt-Booker T Washington Equality Celluloid
Item #: NEW-0010886

Click image to enlarge
Paypal will not be accepted on this item though payment plans can be arranged to suit the buyer. This is a rare one and a quarter inch button which is believed to be a anti Roosevelt button.  Since Washington is bigger than Teddy Roosevelt there is an inference that Roosevelt has been diminished by his decision to invite the first black to dine in the White House. Some surface scratches visible when rotating the button under a light, only two scratches are prominent though not deep.  There is back paper but it looks like it has been disturbed, possibly not the true paper.  The two examples I have seen in auction archives had two different manufacturers, neither matching this one.   All in all a very nice specimen.  Higher resolution scans can be e-mailed upon request.
