    President pin?

    Can anyone tell who this is? I found it at a site that a house was tore down. I knew the gentleman before he died well into his 80's. Ironically, it's the place I found my first silver coin (1919 Merc) at 10 years ago. Three houses are being built on this land right now. I believe it's one of our presidents, just not sure who. I had thought maybe McKinley. As you see it's still on the original black ribbon. Thanks.

    Hi, Mikeó

    Yep, that's William McKinley, all right. Since it's a black ribbon, it's likely a mourning badge from 1901.
