    Al Smith: Three Super and Rare Slogan Buttons. The classic 7/8" "No Oil on Al" refers, of course, to the Teapot Dome scandal, and is generally thought to be a 1924 hopeful item. The 1¼" gold-bordered "Hello Al" is by an obscure Milwaukee button maker, F. E. Jens Co. The 1¼" "Hello Al, Goodbye Cal" is a top want among Smith and Coolidge specialists alike, and sports a suspended china mug on which is written in gold letters "It's up to you." All three are in great condition, and present an important opportunity for the sophisticated hobbyist.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
