    Bryan and Kern pin/badge

    Bryan and Kern were the opponents of William Taft for presidency in 1908. They Lost. as was this pin/badge

    We found it behind a local bar about five inches deep. The neighborhood was from the 50s. Pretty cool find. A handful of change and a silver quarter were also found.

    Certainly a watch fob. That slot at the top is the "give away" to the ID.

    Couldn't this been made into a pinned ribbon sort of campaign bling? Like a military medal. Pin at the top, some ribbon sewn in a loop with the medal dangling below?

    Nice going on the fob really a nice dig.

    LD the fobs were general attached with a leather strap like this example.

    Great find. I would take that over an equally old couple coin any day.
