Description

Five pins and studs associated with William Jennings Bryan and his presidential campaigns, circa 1900-1908, measuring between 3/4″ and 1 3/4″, including a "Victory 1896" portrait stud with ribbon, two different "16 to 1" studs, a "16 to 1" pinback button, and an unmarked American flag ribbon stickpin. In overall very good to fine condition. One of Bryan's populist platform elements was an 'easy money' policy based on the unlimited coinage of silver at a ratio to gold of 16 to 1.
