I'd imagine its collectable although don't have any idea as to its value or rarity .

a lot of people went to those conventions , there is delegates from every state present , so I'd estimate they at least made a couple thousand of them at the time

( you'd be surprised how obsessed the news media here in Canada is about them , I've seen a lot about the us political conventions on tv here )

Hi East TX Terry,

Love your find. WHAT GREAT CONDITION! As RCO noted, this convention was one for the books! The election was won by Calvin Coolidge, a wild + crazy nut from the CT River Valley. If one goes to the South Hadley, MA flea market you'll travel on a bridge named for him. (Some Good glass and other 'tiques there. 'Bout 2+ miles se off I-91.)

you can read about the convention here , didn't yield a well known nominee ( john davis ) or president but is historic for being the longest political convention ever and most ballots 103 , it doesn't say how many people were there but I counted around 1100 votes in the early ballots

Thank you for the info. This was found in Tyler Texas
