Toy elephant promoting Alfred Landon and opposing Franklin Roosevelt for president, 1936. Painted cast iron.
Formed in the shape of an elephant wearing a red blanket bearing the legend, LAND-ON/ ROOSEVELT/ 1936 (repeated both sides).
Paint shows normal wear, overall about 99% intact.
One of the classic political novelties of the 20th century, issued by backers of the Kansas governor for his campaign to unseat FDR. These seldom come on the market, this being the first we have offered.
