1896 William Mckinley - Garret Hobart Brass Shell Mechanical Gop Elephant Pin For Sale
McKinley/Hobart Elephant Pin
This brass shell mechanical pin from the 1896 presidential campaign of Republican William McKinley and his running mate Garret Hobart features paper photographs of both candidates set in a brass shell elephant with reverse pin.
This pin was originally designed to close and latch in front with the candidates’ photos unexposed. When the latch release was pushed the photos would spring open. The latch on this specimen has broken off, so it is permanently open, although the spring is still present
This 1 1/8” x 1 1/8” campaign pin is in Good condition. The photographs show minor wear but are clear and complete. The brass shell pin itself retains most of its original gold patina and, except for the broken latch, is otherwise free of problems.
