circa 1850 Historic "ZACHARY TAYLOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES" Legend, Decorative Color Bust Portrait Snuffbox, Very Fine. Zachary Taylor (1784-1850). 12th President of the United States (1849-1850). Taylor was a historic American military leader who ran as a Whig in the 1848 Presidential election, defeating Lewis Cass, Presidential term: March 4, 1849 - July 9, 1850. Taylor was the last President to hold Slaves while in office, and the last "Whig" Party member to win a Presidential election. Original round Commemorative Snuffbox, having a color central Bust Portrait of an older Zachary Taylor facing left in his civilian dress coat. It is printed in black upon a bright golden-coppery reflective background, measuring 3" in diameter and .5" high. The text of the Legend surrounding the top of the portrait reads, "Zachary Taylor President of the United States". A vintage paper label on the flat bottom apparently has what appears to be a doctor's instructions, and reads: "Catarrh Snuff take a small pinch 2 to 5 times in day. R. H." There is some overall wear, particularly on the top edges from handling, and use and some age crackulature to the top surface paint. Overall, a very collectible snuff box that is quite rare.
