It is highly unlikely that you will find a nicer copy of this record. It is as beautiful as the pictures indicate. From 1908 on a 10 inch Victor Grand Prize #5559: "THE FARMER AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY" by WILLIAM HOWARD TAFT (27th US President). Extremely difficult to find especially in this condition. Send a PM with interest. Packaged meticulously for safe delivery.

Is it actually President Taft speaking? He was my Great, Great Uncle.

Yes, Taft made discs for Victor and cylinders for Edison for the 1912 presidential campaign. They are all hard to find and desirable.
