Ribbon-Jackson-South Carolina Nullification
Item #: NEW-005115

Click image to enlarge
I purchased this ribbon many years ago from a major political dealer who listed it as a Andrew Jackson-South Carolina nullification ribbon. I showed it to a ribbon specialist who stated that the style would indicate that it could be from that era. He also stated that the number of stars in the flag would not be a factor since the makers were quite careless about getting the appropriate number of stars on flags. This flag has 26 stars which would be 1837 through 1845. The motto "So perish Secession" would limit the ribbon to the Jackson era or the Civil War era. Please view the scan to see the condition which is rather poor. Stains, separations and frayed top and bottom.

Here's one that is not listed. I showed to several experienced collectors recently who also had never seen before. Nice condition on the celluloid button which is fairly common.

This was found with a lot of politcal buttons found in a family estate in North Carolina. Special item for the Inaugural specialist.

Original Coonskin Cap-Kefauver Presidential Run
Item #: NEW-004271

Click image to enlarge
This is an actual coonskin cap that was used in Estes Keafuver's campaign for the Presidency in 1952. The coonskin cap became his symbol in his first Senate run in 1948 when E. H Crump, former mayor of Memphis and the "boss" of the state's Democratic Party, accused him of working for the "pinkos and communists" with the stealth of a raccoon. Kefauver responded to such charges, by putting on a coonskin cap and proudly proclaiming, "I may be a pet coon, but I'm not Boss Crump's pet coon." Kefauver continuied to use this unique trademark throughout all of his campaigns. In 1952, a huge coonskip cap hung from the top of the State Capitol in Nashville. I obtained this cap from the nephew of a woman who worked in Kefauver's Presidential campaign. I have compared it to another cap which was owned by another person who actually wore it in 1952.

Eleven inch wood carved and painted folk art rendering of Richard Nixon at the Grand Ole Opry. Signed on the back by Dow Pugh, 1991, an important Tennessee outsider artist, who is now deceased.

1860-Rare Douglas Campaign Newspaper-Nashville Tn
Item #: POL-003245

Click image to enlarge
This Presidential campaign newspaper is devoted to the election of Stephen Douglas. Dated October 20, it is No. 6 of Volume I. Not listed in the State's holdings nor in the OCLC. Inside pages include a ballot with graphics shown in scan. Flag says Douglas & Johnson. Ballot is for the Dougals electors and includes W H Polk of Maury County (kin to James K) Felix Robertson, and many other famous Tennesseeans. The other graphic shown which is also on the inside page has a large wood cut or engraving of a Cock and reads, "He Comes! He Comes! Douglas in Nashville, Democratic Rally..." Ignore the flash reflection. Now as to the condition: Multiple folds with foxing heavy along the folds and especially in the area seen in the scan. Some holes and separations along the folds, especially the upper folds and to a lesser extent at the middle fold. Two of the holes are significant and caused some loss of the text. Holes extend to the second page but not quite as bad. Water stains along the outer edge. Paper has been encapsulated to protect it from further damage but it could be redone professionally to have the foxing bleached out.

Postcard- Senate Campaign-Lyndon Baines Johnson
Item #: POL-001890

Click image to enlarge
Nice condition on this unused post card with minor corner creasing. "If the day ever comes when my vote must be cast to send your boy to the trenches-that day Lyndon Johnson will leave his senate seat to go with him." LBJ did accept a commission in the Navy, where he found himself in only one combat type situation as an observer. The plane he was on came under heavy attack. Johnson received a Silver Star for this event, the only one on the plane who received one, including the pilot who saved the plane. Nevertheless, he was saved from being in the trenches, which he had so cleverly avoided, when FDR proposed a law which would make Congressmen and Senators have to choose between being in the service or being in Washington.
