1896 Classic William Jennings Bryan 16 to 1 Clock Face Button

Quick Overview

William Jennings Bryan clock-faced button. Hake #BRY-129. The clock hands are pointed to illustrate the issue of the day – the setting of the silver standard at 16 to 1. Clock face in deep silver, with red, white and blue detailing at the rim and nice coloring to Bryan's face. We were about to say this was one of the finest condition buttons of this design that we have seen, until when we looked carefully, we noticed that there is light staining on the white collar of his shirt which, at first, we thought was part of the design. Because of this slight imperfection we are listing it at a suitable reduction in price. A great buy for someone who has coveted this button for their collection.
