SOLD

Details

A unique engraved pocket piece from the Election of 1896, apparently carried by a man named Theodore Butz. The reverse has been carefully engraved "ELECTION OF 1896 / Presidential Candidates / 272 - Wm McKINLEY Wm J. BRYAN - 175 / McKINLEY'S PLURALITY 572349 with THEODORE BUTZ at the base of the cartwheel. Light silver gray with many fine marks, small rim nicks, a rim bruise, and other evidence of handling. Theodore Butz is a surprisingly common name, but our guy might be the one who is listed as a Notary Public in Winnetka, IL in 1908 - Winnetka was strong McKinley territory. Shornstein-18 is described as "extremely rare" and is identical but for two little decorations besides the names of the candidates. This would be a nice addition to any collection of Bryan money or political numismatic Americana.
