    Description

    [Harry S Truman]: Anti-Truman "Eight Ball" Button. One of the premier "anti" button designs, it shows the beleaguered president "behind the eight ball." Rare Truman varieties are among the most sought-after among presidential candidates and, with fewer than 10 known, this is one of the best. The present example is stunning; essentially mint with original sheen - so rarely seen on a litho tin button prone to scratches and scuffs. For those who prize condition, no finer example could be found! Diameter 1 1/2". From the Collection of Sam and Jeff Pressman.
