    Charles Evans Hughes: One of the Most Colorful Designs for This 1916 Republican Presidential Hopeful. The 1916 election was a transitional one in terms of political campaign novelties. The often elaborate and fanciful designs of the "golden era" of 1896-1912 began to give way to the more mundane styles of the 1920s. A revival of the 1908 format, this 1¼" Hughes variety clearly runs counter to that trend. Buttons also began to run smaller in terms of size, and all Hughes varieties of 1¼" or larger are scarce. Choice condition with dead-on centering.
