    I posted this under art because of the snuff box I found it in. I realized it might be appreciated in this forum!!

    Our member @Joe2007 collects political memorabilia including campaign buttons and banners. I bet he will want to see this and can give you some feedback.

    Neat! Political items are always really hot during election years. You don't see a lot of items this early. Mr. Douglas' association with Abraham Lincoln, perhaps the most popular political figure out there for collectors, as a presidential challenger adds to the desirability due to cross collecting by numerous Lincoln enthusiasts. Condition is rough on your piece however. Firms like Hakes and Heritage sell a lot of political collectables and have extensive online catalogs.

    I don't think I saw it. I saw the tag from Bakers above. Is there another thread that I need to see?
