1912 Theodore Roosevelt / Bull Moose Party Presidential Campaign Change Purse For Sale

1912 Theodore Roosevelt / Bull Moose Party Presidential Campaign Change Purse

Very Rare and original, 1912, Theodore Roosevelt / Bull Moose Party Presidential Campaign, leather & nickel plated brass Change Purse featuring a portrait of the Candidate with the Bull Moose Party slogan - "Give Every Man a Square Deal".


This wonderful, 1912 Bull Moose Party Presidential Campaign item features a black leather pouch with a nickel plated brass "frame" / closure at the top that measures approx. 2 1/2" by 1 1/2". The frame features a highly embossed metal plate with a portrait of the Candidate in the center flanked by banner devices with text on the banners that reads "Give Every Man a Square Deal". Text below the portrait on a banner reads "Theo. Roosevelt". When the Purse is open there is a celluloid panel on the underside of the lid that reads "Compliments Joannes Bros. Co., Wholesale Grocers, Green Bay, Wis".


In our effort to date this obvious Presidential Campaign Item, we repeatedly encountered the use of the Campaign Slogan "Give Every Man a Square Deal" to Roosevelt's 1912 run for the Presidency as the Progressive Party / Bull Moose Party Candidate. We are confident that this is a 1912 Campaign item and not from Roosevelt's earlier Presidential Campaign of 1904.


In 1912 the Presidential Election was hotly contested by 4 major candidates. The incumbent Republican President William Howard Taft was opposed not only by the Democratic Party Candidate Woodrow Wilson and the Socialist Party candidate Eugene Debs, but also by his former mentor Theodore Roosevelt (running as a third party candidate of the newly formed Progressive Party - popularly known as the "Bull Moose Party") .


This rare and original, 1912 Theodore Roosevelt Bull Moose Party Presidential Campaign Change Purse is in very good condition. The leather / suede pouch is intact and sound with light surface wear. The frame / closure is intact and without physical damage of any kind. The rope form border exhibits some loss to the nickel plating while the central plate retains 100% of its original nickel plated surface. Overall the Change Purse is well preserved and displays nicely.


A rare and very attractive, 1912, Theodore Roosevelt / Bull Moose Party Presidential Campaign, leather & nickel plated brass Change Purse and a fantastic addition to any Collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
