RARE Taft-Sherman "Elephant Ears" sells for $6,216.00 on Anderson Auctions

One of the most sought after political pins sells for $6,216.00 on Anderson Americana.

One of the greatest pins in political campaigning history – the legendary Taft-Sherman Elephant Ears. No great collection is complete without one of these. Taft and Sherman teamed up in 1908 when this pin was made to keep the Republican elephant in the White House. This 1 1/4 inch celluloid has a Whitehead and Hoag back paper and is in excellent condition. Few pins can match the Elephant Ears for its design and rarity. It is simply a spectacular piece of history.

Rare Murphy Barry Goldwater Coattail pin

$500.00 or best offer

This is a rare coattail pin form the 1964 Presidential Race.  In 1964, George Murphy was elected to the Senate, having defeated Pierre Salinger, the former presidential press secretary in the Kennedy White House, who had been appointed several months earlier to serve the remainder of the late Clair Engle's unexpired term. Murphy served from January 1, 1965 to January 3, 1971, and is credited with beginning the United States Senate tradition of the Candy desk. Murphy assumed his seat two days early, when Salinger resigned from the seat in order to allow Murphy to gain an edge in seniority. Murphy was then appointed by Democratic Governor Pat Brownto serve the remaining two days of Salinger's term.

Incredible WWII excavation discovered!!

Incredible WW II ground dig found!!!!!!!

I know it's not political memorabila but an impressive discovery nonetheless.

I'm sharing here with the WW1 aficionados,what i think is the most incredible find for a couple of years ,in our soil of France.
A member of my french forum digged this stuff last week,in a kind of dump site.
This is not something our eyes are able to see without instantly crying....
And it's only the beginning,he's today back on the place and keep on diggin'!!
Pics courtesy of Harvest.
Russia's not the only place to dig,ha ha ha !!!France's first!!
