|The picture shows a view of all (3) Small 1936 Landon & Knox Political Campaign Items in this lot. There are two different size tin pin back buttons and an unused match book. The two pinback buttons each have the GOP elephant and read ''LANDON - KNOX''. The matchbook is marked as follows:|
LANDON AND KNOX
VOTE STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN TICKET
In 1936, Landon sought the Republican presidential nominee opposing the re-election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. At the Republican National Convention in 1936, Alf Landon's campaign manager John Hamilton mobilized the younger elements of the party against the faction led by Herbert Hoover. Landon won the nomination on the first ballot; the convention selected Chicago newspaper publisher (and future FDR's Secretary of Navy) Frank Knox as his running mate.
To judge the sizes the larger pin back button measures 1-1/4'' wide. All three are in excellent condition as pictured. The match book is unused and has all of the matches.
