Recently seen was a John Work Garrett for Senator celluloid political 7/8" pinback. Garrett of course was the main architect of the extraordinary Johns Hopkins University numismatic collection - likely the finest quality American coin, token and medal collection ever formed - sold by Bowers and Ruddy 1979-1981 in four parts.
Was Garrett's one-time and presumably unsuccessful foray into the political arena previously known to the hobby?
Interesting. I've never seen this item before. I don't recall Garrett running for office, but it wouldn't be the first numismatic fact to slip from my brain (or more likely, fail to enter it in the first place). Can anyone tell us more? Thanks.
