Stickpin promoting William Howard Taft for president, 1912. Gilt brass shell, mounted to long shanked pin. Formed in the shape of a possum carrying a golf club.

Taft began the now quasi-official presidential pastime. Here his marsupial avatar heads for the green...certainly one of the most oblique and unusual political pins we've ever handled.
