Well surprise surprise, as of January 15, 2015 there were a total of 154 people who have filed their Statement of Candidacy (FEC Form 2) with the Federal Election Commission.

The link below lists all individuals who have filed a Statement of Candidacy (FEC Form 2) with the FEC to register as a 2016 presidential candidate.election_commission

Each individual who is a candidate for federal office must file an FEC Form 2 within 15 days of becoming a candidate. The candidate may file this form on paper or electronically. Paper filers may choose to send a letter that contains the information required on the FEC Form 2, in lieu of the form itself.

Under the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, as amended (the Act), an individual becomes a candidate for federal office when:

* The individual has received contributions aggregating in excess of $5,000 or made expenditures aggregating in excess of $5,000; or

* The individual has given consent to another person to receive contributions or make expenditures on behalf of him or herself and that person has received contributions aggregating in excess of $5,000 or made expenditures aggregating in excess of $5,000 (11 CFR 100.3(a)).

Authenticating Presidential Autographs Is Sometimes Easier Than You Would Think Authenticating the signatures of American Presidents is an arduous and time consuming task. You have to examine the paper stock, the ink, the flow of the ink, the age of the paper, the curls and peculiarities of the letters and characters and compare them to known examples.

But sometimes it's easier than you think. Like today. A very nice lady sent us a photograph of a Franklin D. Roosevelt signature on a commemorative cover (envelope) which she said "looked good". Indeed the paper looked good, the signature was bold and clear. But we didn't really have to look very hard to determine it was truly not an original signature of President Roosevelt.

How did we know? Because the postmark on cover was 1966. President Roosevelt died in 1945.

So as the veteran newscaster Paul Harvey would have said, "now you know the rest of the story" :)

Uncles Sam's Birthday Is This Week In 1989, "Uncle Sam Day" became official. A Congressional joint resolution designated September 13, 1989 as "Uncle Sam Day" (birthday of Samuel Wilson).Today marks the day in 1813 when the United States officially took on its nickname of “Uncle Sam.” The name conjures up images of a man in a top hat pointing his finger at the viewer, but the character was named for a real person — Samuel Wilson.

Wilson was a meat packer who sent barrels of beef to the U.S. Army during the War of 1812. He stamped his barrels with “U.S.” for United States, but soldiers referred to the meat as “Uncle Sam’s,” and soon the name became synonymous for the federal government. It wasn’t until the 1860s that a political cartoonist drew Uncle Sam with a beard in a patriotic suit, and not until World War I, the character was juxtaposed with the phrase “I Want You for the U.S. Army.”

APIC Denver Political Memorabilia Convention an Outstanding Success (Denver, Colorado). This past weekend the American Political Items Collectors (APIC) held its National Convention in Denver Colorado.

The convention was well attended and the comments heard round the convention floor was that this year's convention was one of the best ever.

Kudos go out to Ron Puechner (and of course his lovely wife Martha) along with dozens of dedicated volunteers who made this convention an outstanding success.

One of the highlights of the bourse was the number of dealers from around the country who went out of their way to provide free vintage campaign buttons to youngsters who attended the convention. What a great way of promoting our great hobby to the younger generation.
