Here is a very nice 1904 Parker & Davis Democratic political campaign button to add to your collection. After the Democratic hopeful William Jennings Bryan lost both the 1896 and 1900 presidential elections. The Democratic Party in 1904, decided on a widely respected conservative-democrat New York Supreme Court of Appeals judge, Alton B. Parker. They added multi-million Henry Davis to the ticket for Vice-President, in hopes he would fund the campaign. He did not, and the campaign was very lack luster in its attempt for the White House. Not to mention who they were going up against at the time, Teddy Roosevelt! I think that no matter who the Democrats chose for the 1904 election, they had no chance against Teddy, and lost this election by a landslide. This button is in excellent condition, and the few tiny spots you see within Alton Parker's face, are just in the photo from tiny specks of dust and nothing else. You won't be disappointed in its condition, the colors are still very even and bright. It measures 1-1/4" across, and was made by the Whitehead & Hoag Co. Newark, NJ. Don't miss out on adding this great piece of Democratic Presidential campaign history to your collection.
