Collecting Political Items from Montana and National Elections; a Hobby and Passion

Montana became a territory in 1864 and was subsequently admitted to the union as a state in 1889. Early Montana politics was dominated by the war between the Copper Kings, two of the richest and most powerful men in America. Both were loyal democrats but their ongoing struggle to thwart the other’s political aspirations effected not only state elections and the location of the capital but also lead to the popular election of US Senators due to the corruption associated with William Clark’s Senatorial campaigns. Many campaign items have been produced supporting candidates for state offices, the campaign to locate the capital and also presidential items linked to Montana. This webpage will explore and present these items which include ribbons, badges, pinbacks, posters and other ephemera. In addition, there is a section providing the results of governor, senate and congressional races in Montana and others covering different aspects general political campaign item collection and preservation. Articles will be added from time to time but the dates of publication have been altered to maintain the desired order of the articles. Also, this is a living website so the articles will be updated and revised from time to time and new acquisitions added. Hope you enjoy it; feel free to contact me about appraisals and items you would like to sell.

If you have campaign items you would like to sell or have appraised contact us through the link or text photos to (406)217-2017

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is one thing that not sufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very blissful that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something referring to this.
