There were skeleton pins made for both candidates in the 1896 election. A version for McKinley supporters read “16 to 1 is Dead” while this version for Bryan supporters reads “Death to Trusts”. These pins are meant to have a mechanical feature that reveals a picture of the candidate inside the skeleton. These are valuable pins, especially if the pin is still functioning.
