Badge promoting John Bell for president and Edward Everett for vice president, 1860. Brass with inset ferrotypes. DeWitt JBELL 1860-22. Holed for suspension.
OBV: Ferrotype portrait of Bell set in metallic frame inscribed, JOHN BELL. AND THE CONSTUTITION. REV: Ferrotype portrait of Everett set in metallic frame inscribed, EDWARD EVERETT. AND THE UNION.
Flawless example, superior to the Frent example which sold for $1,875.00 in 2018 (Heritage Auctions, The David and Janice Frent Collection of Presidential & Political Americana, Part 3 #6189, Lot 43254), and arguably the best example known. The larger size gives this style considerable presence over standard size ferrotypes.
Pay by check or money order, and the price will be reduced to $1500 (discount will be applied after order is confirmed).
Must ship to a U.S. address (no international orders).
