"United Snakes of America" Token Bryan Money S-360
Here is a cool new purchase:
38mm, struck in aluminum. Listed as very rare in Fred Schornstein's book. This token or "Bryan Money" medalette from the 1900 Presidential election is quite interesting! The obverse features an old woman riding a donkey over a goose that has "POP" branded into its sides. Its legend bears the striking, "United Snakes of America," and adds "Anti-expansion" and "Anti- everything" for good measure.
The reverse mocks Bryan's 16 to 1 idea of free silver with the "One Dam" denomination.
I've seen the more common United Snakes of America token with the donkey head on a goose, but Ive never seen one of these for sale before. So I jumped on it. What do you guys think?
Feel free to post your Bryan Money to this thread as well...
