(Please view all the photos showing close-up details of the walking stick and invitation.)

These are rare collectible pieces of Americana from the 1976 bicentennial presidential election. Included in this collection is a vintage cane (an actual walking stick) produced for the election of JIMMY CARTER during the Ford/Carter campaign AND the OFFICIAL CARTER/MONDALE INAUGURAL INVITATION.

The cane has a metal pewter-like c-grip handle on a beautiful tapered wooden shaft. On one side of the handle in raised letters is “JIMMY CARTER” with raised stars and donkey head. The other side of the handle has “For President” in raised letters and stars and “76”. The handle is also embossed with the copyright “S.B. OUTLAW 76”. The cane is in pristine condition and measures approx. 35 1/4" from the top of the handle to the bottom of the white tip which shows no sign of aging. There are minute scuffs on the bottom of the tip from the 47 years the cane stood in display. The cane supposedly mimics FDR’s 1932 campaign cane. The 1976 election resulted in Jimmy Carter narrowly beating incumbent Gerald R. Ford.

The OFFICIAL CARTER/MONDALE INAUGURAL INVITATION is in its original unsealed and unaddressed envelope with the return address “Congress of the United States”. In addition to the actual invitation, this invitation packet includes black and white photos of President Carter and Vice President Mondale and a nine-page inaugural program booklet bound with red, white, and blue ribbon. This invitation is in mint condition with an unnoticeable discoloration due to its age. The high-quality stationery and card stock have no extraneous marks.

In addition to the cane and the invitation, I will include 22 vintage presidential campaign buttons of random winners and losers dating from the election of Ulysses S. Grant in 1868. All are probably reproductions except for the Johnson/Humphrey and McGovern/Shriver buttons. However, the authenticity of these two buttons has not been verified. At the end of this advertisement is a listing of all 22 candidates who appear on the campaign buttons and information about the year they ran for president. Additionally, there are two authentic campaign buttons from the 1978 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election and state senate election.

Please ask questions. All items are described honestly and accurately.
