Object Name Pin, Political
Description A pig and opera glasses pin. The pig is mostly grey with some areas, especially the underbelly, having a more gold color. A small ring on top of the pig's back connects a small chain to a miniature pair of opera glasses. The opera glasses are primarily gold in color with a small green sphere near where each lens would be. There is a hole in the pig's mouth and another under the tail where one used to be able to view a picture of William Jennings Bryan. Light can still be seen through the hole.
