Vote Poster-League of Women Voters
Item #: NEW-0016664

Click image to enlarge
This magnificent poster was made by the League of Women Voters in 1920, the year that women won the right to vote.  I was fortunate enough to purchase five of these posters in an estate sale years ago and all were dispersed among collectors over the years.  These posters were made in two sizes, this being the larger size, 18 X 30 inches.  The posters have sold in the thousands of dollars range. Originals are quite scarce although it has  been reproduced. Nothing can match the beauty of a color lithograph.  I have one hanging in my home and this one surfaced from the estate of the original seller.  This poster has wear in the borders which would be covered up in framing.  There is however, a six inch crease line which you will note in the scan and two smaller creases of an inch or so running upward and downward from that crease. These creases are harder to spot but actually are deeper.

1917 LS-Teddy Roosevelt-Interesting Content
Item #: NEW-0013106

Click image to enlarge
The condition on this letter is not great with folds, stains, crumpling, and a couple of tiny edge tears.  The letter is typed of the letterhead of Metropolitan, NYC, from the office of Theodore Roosevelt.  Here is the brief content:

"My dear Mr Barnes:

That's a mighty nice letter of yours.  Indeed, it would have been a pleasure to include you in my division if the President had permitted me to raise it."  Signed T Roosevelt.  The back story of this content is what makes this interesting.

The following information is from the article in Wikipedia, Roosevelt's World War I volunteers:

"In his book Foes of Our Own Household (1917), Roosevelt says that he had authorization from Congress to raise four divisions to fight in France."  He had actually selected eighteen officer and directed them to actively recruit volunteer troops shortly after the US entered the war.  Wilson ultimately rejected Roosevelt's plan and the volunteer Army disbanded.

Land On Washington Celluloid-Alfred Landon
Item #: NEW-0012586

Click image to enlarge
This listing includes a cautionary message.  This button had always been like the Holy Grail for me so I jumped on it when it was offered to me by a dealer in a dark room at a show many years ago.  I had failed to bring my magnifying glass with me and as mentioned it was a very dark room.  I was assured by the dealer that there were absolutely no defects in the button and that he was selling the button at a great price since he needed the money. ( at that time $2500.00) I really am at a loss to describe the condition of the button.  There are scattered pin prick type dots that cover the button but it is smooth to the touch.  I don't believe they penetrate to the paper.  There is though a very small celluloid split, that you have to look for even with a strong magnification.  You would miss it except for the fact that it has some simichrome polish residue which I used to see if I could make the spots go away, The button looks great to the eye so am offering it for a fraction for what I paid for it years and years ago.  Needless to say, paypal will not be accepted on this item but payment plans can be arranged. A return will be accepted within a two week period if the buyer is willing to pay for the postage and insurance one way. I can also send a higher resolution scan via e-mail if desired.

Rare Teddy Roosevelt Celluloid
Item #: NEW-0012556

Click image to enlarge
Paypal will not be accepted on this item though payment plans can be arranged. 

This three and three fourths of an inch button was made by the Indianapolis Manufacturing Company.  It came out of a very large collection in Indiana according to the dealer I bought it from over twenty years ago.  I have seen the same graphics from a major Teddy Roosevelt collection but never with this wording.  "Get there I will" refers to becoming President, in my opinion.  There are no cracks or foxing.  Under extra strong magnification one can see the usual surface scratches that one sees on old buttons.  There are also four tiny indentations which do not affect the look of the button which is very smooth to the touch. A button this rare would most probably be offered in an auction and I have no doubt it would go higher than priced here.

Scarce Variety-Teddy Roosevelt Celluloid
Item #: NEW-0012277

Click image to enlarge
One and a quarter inch button with the Whitehead Hoag paper insert. This button is unlisted in Hake and I have not seen another one in the twenty years since I bought it.  Now for the bad news. Viewing it under strong magnification I note some tiny punctures and scratches, including some that look pretty deep although perhaps not all the way through. There is a tiny area across from TR's mustache near the inner circle that is either a celluloid circular shaped cut or maybe some other type of cello disruption.  There is also some tiny bubbling around the top of the flag.  Despite all this it looks very nice to the eye and would look as good as any other in a display case.

Rare Indiana Lincoln-Johnson Ribbon-Warsaw County
Item #: NEW-0012261

Click image to enlarge
No paypal on this item though payment plans can be arranged. This is an unlisted ribbon that I bought over fifteen years ago from an Indiana Civil War dealer.  He said it was found in Indiana in a family bible.  The ribbon measures seven by two plus inches.  Folds where it was in the bible. Light crease at top right corner and some pin holes along the top where pins were likely inserted.  There is a long light water stain which does not distract from the appearance that much.  Although there are a few other Warsaw Counties in other states I am assuming that it is from Indiana.   Warsaw is the county seat of Kosciusko County.

PC Lot-Teddy Roosevelt-Hermitage Visit-Original Pose+Censored Pose
Item #: NEW-0011229

Click image to enlarge
These two views tell the story of racial attitudes in the South during the early 1900's.  Teddy Roosevelt paid a visit to Nashville in 1907 and these scarce views show the President at the tomb of Andrew Jackson on the grounds of the Hermitage. Roosevelt had previously inflamed certain Southern segments for inviting Booker T Washington to dine in the White House.  

 The first view was mailed but the year is not on the card. .  Wear to the corners of the first view, particularly on the bottom where some of the image has worn off. The second card has very minor wear.  Note the two unknown black men in the forefront, along with all the other dignitaries.  This card was evidently very offensive to many Tennesseans as the second card of this same scene shows that the black men were cropped out, one replaced by a concrete tree stump and the other replaced by a bush. I can only surmise that objections were made about black people being so prominently with the President.

Rare-Authentic Locofoco Note-David Claypoole Johnston
Item #: NEW-0011189

Click image to enlarge
This rare satirical, anti Martin Van Buren note is only offered in an auction, although I can't recall ever seeing one in an auction.  This is not to be confused with the replica note that accompanied the book, Great Locofoco Juggernaut, A New Console-a-tory Sub-Treasury Rag-Monster: A Cartoon Bank Note by D. C. Johnston which can also be found on my site. Paypal will not be accepted on this item, though payment plans can be arranged.

 This note was made on very thin rag paper which can be see by the scan of the back of the note.  I would describe the condition as being excellent.  It does have some light creasing on the edges, and there is a light line that runs horizontally through the note which you can see on the back but barely on the front.  Irregular cut.  No tears or pin holes and clean of stains.   

This mock bank note, drawn by the artist David Claypoole Johnston (1799-1865), was issued in 1837 in response to the fiscal crisis associated with the United States Bank and the sub-treasury proposed by Martin Van Buren. Puns abound in the verse, and the president, his predecessor Andrew Jackson, and Vice President Richard M. Johnson (1780-1850) are skewered for policies that political conservatives, bankers, and businessmen blamed for the country's economic woes. Johnston depicts Van Buren in several places on the note. Near the top he is seen as a cat, sitting on a bag of bank deposits on top of the juggernaut being driven by Vice President Johnson. On the left he is shown as a monkey heading "to ruin" behind an ass with Andrew Jackson's face. And in the center he is being choked by a snake labeled "Treasury Circular." Critics believed that radical Democrats, called Locofocos, were steamrolling ahead with reckless fiscal policies and that the new sub-treasury would flood the economy with worthless paper currency known as "rags" or "shinplasters." Van Buren's opponents blamed him for following Jackson's fiscal policies and contended that working men, instead of being aided by the sub-treasury, would be crushed by the new "monster" while public officials and the wealthy would benefit.

Incredible Real Photo Postcard-Teddy Roosevelt Progressive Party Campaign
Item #: NEW-0010938

Click image to enlarge
They don't get any better than this post card displaying a street scene covered with Teddy Roosevelt-Hiram Johnson-Progressive Party campaign banners. Condition problems described at the end.  The license plate on the truck displaying the signage  "Flying Squadron First Division-Roosevelt & Johnson" appears to read NY.  The truck also has a banner with portraits of Roosevelt and Johnson.  Large portraits of the two are hanging from the building which says ARENA.  There is also signage on a lower store which reads, A W Youngblood.  The window display of this store appears to be photographs and or postcards.  There is also a poster displayed which is probably for a planned event possibly at that site.  "All the news of Roosevelt's Progressive Movement"
.  I broke my rule of not buying things in frames and was not too shocked to see three strips of double sided tape on the back.  There is no way that I know to remove it and I don't want to try some of the methods I've heard about.  I have placed a heavy archival backing to cover up the sticky part which would be sure to cause further damage to something else.  There is a crease at the top right hand corner, accompanied by a series of edge creases.  There is also a long horizontal crease or break in the photofinish which extends more than half of the card.  Also a small break in the finish at the bottom edge.

The Nashville Tennesseans's Inaugural Special Celluloid-Related Paper Item
Item #: NEW-0010703

Click image to enlarge
No paypal accepted on this lot which consists of two item.  The first item is a one and 3/4 inch button with ribbons which read Truman, Barkley, Inauguration  Excellent condition other than a couple of clear spotting visible under strong magnification.  The other item is a one of a kind booklet produced by the Nashville Tennessean Newspaper that sponsored the event.  The first page is a membership certificate that is filled out.  Few examples of the button exist.  There is an interesting story regarding this button and two subsequent trips.  I wrote an article many years ago which was published in the Political Collector which I will  present here is an edited version.  

                                                                           The Nashville Tennessean Inaugural Specials 

     Many attribute greatness to a button due to graphics or rarity.  Other buttons hold collector's interest because of the story which may lie behind the button.  I have found that researching a button can be a fascinating aspect of the hobby.  My first clue to the origins of the button came when I was shown a button in a friend's collection which read "The Nashville Tennessean.Special Train to the 1961 Inauguration.  A trip to the archives produced an account of the Kennedy Inaugural button and the special trip that was organized by the Tennessean.  I even found a photograph in the paper of a woman wearing the button.  A quick trade allowed me to add this button to my collection.  It was at this point that the story became as interesting to me as the buttons.  Pursuing the story, I finally found a sympathetic ear at the Tennessean where I learned from a long time employee that there were three Inaugural Specials, beginning with Truman and ending with Jimmy Carter.  An LBJ Special was not run, presumably because the Tennessean's Editor, John Seigenthaler was a close friend and confidant of the Kennedy family. This time my research was rewarded with an unexpected bonus.  While rummaging through the old files my newspaper content discovered a couple of Carter Inaugural Special buttons, which arrived in the mail the following day.  Now completely drawn into the story, I spent an afternoon at the library, reviewing on microfilm the paper's account of the first Inaugural Special.

   The 1949 Special consisted of nine luxurious Pullmans which carried 174 passengers.  The passengers were a mixture of the average citizen lured by the special prices to the prominent.Sixteen year old Ronnie Anderson had won a free trip through an essay contest on "Why I should Like to See President Truman Inaugurated."

     The states's new governor Gordon Browning, headed the list of distinguished people who boarded the diesel-powered train.  Minnie Pearly of Grand Ole Opry fame was among the excited passengers.

     According to newspaper accounts, "Each guest received specially made buttons."  

A complete copy of my article will be sent with this lot.

Coffin Broadside-Anti Andrew Jackson
Item #: NEW-009848

Click image to enlarge
No paypal on this item although pay payment plans are accepted.  The broadside measures 22 by 14 inches.  Rag paper encapsulated but can be easily removed.  Some edge tears at the top and chunk out of upper right hand corner.  Vertical fold which covers the entire broadside and three other horizontal folds.  Hole at the first vertical and horizontal fold affecting one word, "eyes". One separation one inch long at the vertical fold, not affecting the content.  Other edge tears and some mild chipping in one area.  This broadside presents well and the problems I have noted are not pronounced at all.
 
"Some Account of Some of the Bloody Deeds of General Jackson" reads the headline on this anti-Jacksonian propaganda. During the 1828 presidential campaign, this broadside condemned Andrew Jackson for being a bloodthirsty disciplinarian because he ordered the execution of six mutinous militiamen in 1813. It is one of several "coffin" broadsides printed by John Binns, a Republican newspaper editor who aggressively campaigned against Jackson. A woodcut scene at lower right portrays Jackson assaulting and stabbing Samuel Jackson "in the streets of Nashville.

This important broadside is rarely offered in the market and then in a an auction setting.

Rare Alabama Button-Black Civil Rights Party
Item #: NEW-009500

Click image to enlarge
One and a quarter inch celluloid button for the National Democratic Party of Alabama, a party to promote voting rights for African Americans. One and a quarter inch cello in good condition. Here is a history of this party found on the web: National Democratic Party of Alabama was a political party active in the state of Alabama, founded by John L. Cashin in 1968. The party became a prominent voice for black voting rights and an important player in local politics in black-dominated communities, but failed to make a lasting impact on state politics. During the 1968 Presidential election, the state's Democratic Party divided on two factions - one, who supported former Governor and American Independent Party nominee George Wallace and those who supported Vice President Hubert Humphrey - a Democratic nominee. Democrats loyal to Humphrey and national Democratic Party formed NDPA as a vehicle to field a slate of electors pledged to him. Although national Democratic Party supported Humphrey, Wallace was put on ballot in his home state as official Democratic nominee (like Dixiecrat Strom Thurmond in 1948 in some southern states, although Harry S. Truman was Democratic nominee, or in 1964, when Democrat Lyndon B. Johnson was not in ballot in Alabama, and an unpledged electors slate was officially nominated by Alabama's Democrats). In 1970, John L. Cashin ran as the NDPA candidate for governor against George Wallace-getting 15% of the vote. The NDPA was able to get around hundred of local officials elected, especially in the Western parts of the state.
