    Description

    AL Smith: Imposing & Colorful 4" Celluloid By Western Badge. Made as a button with filled metal back and what appears to the original wire for attachment. Choice and unimprovable condition. 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. From the collection of Sam and Jeff Pressman.
