    Description

    Al Smith: Imposing & Colorful 4" Celluloid By Western Badge. Particularly noteworthy for this design, on the rare occasion when these appear, the reds and blues tend to be faded. This example is far from the case, having bold colors and a strong image of Smith. What better centerpiece for an Al Smith collection? An equally attractive Hoover mate was also issued, creating the potential for a truly spectacular matched pair. Some light wear seen at an angle otherwise a beautiful example of this highly coveted campaign button. Selections from the Collection of Tom Charles Huston.
