My latest acquisition – O.C. Berg for Secretary of State

ebay_ocbergThe eBay listing said 1898, but I’m not sure of that. I’d have to more research on whether he ran that year.

What I do know is that this is a political campaign button for O.C. Berg, South Dakota’s 4th Secretary of State, serving from 1901-1905.

Not bad. This is one I haven’t run across before, and a fine addition to the bulletin board by my desk.

    Mr. Berg sports a beard well. That’s what Mr. Gant would look like if he too sported a beard.

    Now that is cool! I’m sure there are a lot of buttons and pins out there for top ticket candidates and officials but the farther down the ticket the rarer the find.
