IOWA / HORACE BOIES

SKU 01426B
Badge promoting Horace Boies for president (Democratic hopeful), 1896.  2 x 3 1/2".  In excellent condition but missing the original ribbon.  Boise's portrait below an eagle is suspended from a silvered brass IOWA badge.  The gold/silver wash exemplifies Boise's support of a silver standard / bimetallism and this scarce badge was most likely worn by an Iowa Delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Chicago.
