Here is a piece from William Jennings Bryan's 1908 presidential campaign. This piece was given to those who chipped in a dollar. Before you laugh at that, you must realize that this was the better part of a day's wages for many people. Therefore this was a significant contribution. Bryan was the only candidate to run in the fairly recent era who ran for President three times and lost all three times. He won the Democratic Party nomination on all three occasions. It's something that could never happen today. The only other three time loser was Henry Clay, who ran in 1824, 1832 and 1844. Clay nominated himself in 1824. At the time there was only the Democratic Party, which was in the process of breaking up into factions. Later, the anti-Jackson faction formed the Whig Party, which broke up over the slavery issue in the early 1850s. Much of the modern Republican Party arose from those ashes circa 1854. Here is an 1844 Henry Clay token. The Whigs were very pro-business, and that is reflected on the design of this piece.
