Badge promoting Rutherford Hayes for president, 1876. Brass shell with inset ferrotype. DeWitt RBH 1876-45. Ferrotype portrait set in circular frame mounted on nine-pointed star, suspended from an eagle clasp. Backed with red, white and blue silk ribbon.

A nearly flawless example of a rare ferrotype worn by supporters of the Ohio governor and ultimate victor of the disputed 1876 election. We believe the accenting patriotic ribbon is original.
