This is a rare and very valuable button from the Election of 1896. There is also a McKinley hobby button. Depicted on this button is Bryan riding on a stick bird of some kind – it looks like a chicken. There are also the words “My Hobby A Winner”. This button (along with the McKinley companion) is humorous and is popular because of its colorful and tongue-in-cheek nature.
