    Description

    RARE AND IMPORTANT "TYLER AND TEXAS". Exceedingly rare and important "Tyler and Texas" John Tyler shank button.  The slogan clearly marks this as an 1844 "hopeful" item, and indeed Sullivan has it listed as JT 1844-3 (although he was unable to get access to an example to photograph).  We have heard of a private sale 12-15 years ago at the $2000 price level, but have never handled one of these before.  Certainly only a few in the hobby.  22 mm, great condition.
