    Description

    Eugene V. Debs: Convict Button. Debs ran his final campaign from a prison cell, incarcerated for his political activities. In order to elicit sympathy, his supporters issued various campaign items showing him as a convict behind bars! All are scarce to rare, and are among the most prized "third party" items among collectors. This 1" button is in great shape, with good, strong red color.
