    Unusual McKinley Memorial-Love Token Badge

    Unusual Love Token-McKinley Memorial Badge. This unusual item is roughly in the shape of a current policeman's badge, with three upper points but no lower point. The center is a Barber dime, hammered out thin, with love token-style fancy initials engraved in the center, possibly WFR? Around the outside, the brass badge shape is affixed, reading PRES. McKINLEY WAS SHOT SEPT. 6TH 1901 DIED 14TH 1901. A colleague suggests that the dime is an 1898 Barber, but that leap requires better eyesight or imagination than this cataloger possesses. A straight-line, narrow cut appears through the right half at the center, and the piece in quite thin and slightly bent, making a net grade of perhaps Very Good.
