    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.
