Pinback buttons promoting William Howard Taft and William Jennings Bryan for president, 1908. No maker marks, but came with a group of St. Louis pinbacks.
Given the fact they are obviously a matched pair from the same maker, and the fact that we have never seen them before, we strongly believe these to be salesman's samples (issued as a one-off rather than mass-produced). Both are also mint, and having remained together since the campaign, we feel obliged to offer them together. They make a very handsome presentation.
