A choice collection of over 65 pieces of campaign memorabilia relating to the 1964 presidential campaign of Republican Party challenger Barry Goldwater. Pieces include pinback buttons and jugates, lapel pins, ribbons, and campaign button tabs. Displayed in an aesthetically pleasing montage on a black felt-covered mat measuring 24.375" x 16.5". The lot comes with an optional wooden and glass showcase behind which the mat was originally displayed. There are many gems in this completely unpicked collection waiting to be discovered!

This assortment of memorabilia includes excellent anti-LBJ examples, such as "LBJ's for LBJ!"; "Goldwater-Miller, A Choice Not an Echo"; and "Lady Bird Start Flying, Barry is Coming" buttons.
