The back cover of Charlie Davis' October 30, 2010 Mail Bid Sale pictures an interesting campaign poster for A. Piatt Andrew, the former U.S. Mint Director and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. Here's the lot description.
203 A[B RAM] PAITT ANDREW: Political Poster, 14x20"
(1921) heavy board, sepia toned portrait of the candidate
with all text in red. As New. (50.00)
Running for his first term in Congress, Andrew billed himself as
REPUBLICAN - PROGRESSIVE. CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS. UNITED WE
STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL/ A. PIATT ANDREW, FORMERLY DIRECTOR
OF THE MINT AND ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY followed by
an endorsement from the Gloucester Master Mariner’s Association “We
have found, hold and proclaim him our friend, a friend of friends, a man
among men.” Obviously respected, Andrew served 8 terms and died in
office. In the following 75 years, Massachusetts has probably not had 8
terms of a conservative congressman adding all districts together.
