    Harry S Truman: The Key "60 Million People Working" Button Rarity. Truman campaign material generally ranges from scarce to rare. One theory is that he looked to be such a sure loser that there were limited funds available for such niceties as campaign novelties. In any event, Truman's pinbacks are among the most coveted of all candidates and we offer here what is undoubtedly the most sought-after and valued of the lot, with at most ten examples known in collections. The first example handled by Heritage fetched $19,717 in our August 2008 auction. This example is in outstanding condition - clean, bright, well-centered with high gloss. It should satisfy even the most fastidious of collectors. An opportunity not likely to come your way again anytime soon.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
