    "Monster" 3 1/2" 1924 Coolidge Pinback Button
    While one of the most familiar Coolidge buttons in 7/8" size, this 3 1/2" version is another story entirely! This is the plate example from Hake's 1920-1976 book (no. 2019, p. 18), but we have surely never seen another. Large buttons from this tough election are extremely expensive: the "standard" brown 4" design, which matches the Davis, routinely sells in the $3000-$5000 range, even though they appear on the market with some regularity. This is a fully formed pinback button, with original pin on reverse (not some sort of plaque or license attachment). Basically in great shape. Because of the price level, we note for strict accuracy one very trivial fine diagonal scratch, not on his face and visible only with the light at the proper angle. Also a cluster of several very minor tiny surface indentations in the hair, below his hairline, which you really have to search for to see. Considering the rarity and display appeal of this item these minor flaws should not deter even a condition-conscious collector, as they certainly do not detract from the pleasing display appearance of this button.
