Badge promoting Horatio Seymour for president, 1868. Portrait variant of DeWitt HS 1868-36.
Clasp in shape of displayed eagle grasping a ring in its beak, from which is suspended a shield bearing a ferrotype portrait of Seymour.
Extremely rare badge for the New York governor who narrowly lost the first presidential election following the Civil War. A very fine example with sharp, unimpaired image of the candidate.
