Broadside promoting Benjamin Harrison and opposing Grover Cleveland for president, 1892. Makes the case for the purchase and coinage of silver by the U.S. Treasury, which Cleveland opposed and Harrison favored. Ironically, the party positions would reverse later in the 1890s, when Bryan took up the banner of free silver, and McKinley stood for the gold standard. Quotes relevant speeches by both presidents, and notes the value of silver per ounce has increased during Harrison's administration, a boon to western mining interests. Illustrated with the obverse of a Morgan dollar. Light horizontal creases. The first example we have seen in 20+ years.
