    Charles Evans Hughes: Possibly Unique Rarity. This 1 1/4" gem was featured in the Fall 2011 Keynoter, a journal pertaining to collecting Political Americana. This button was discovered by a long time Hughes collector, and seems to be the only example known. The button pictures a young Hughes against the background of a clock with his name above and the campaign slogan "The Man Of The Hour" below. We know this is a 1916 campaign button because of the copyright date of 1916 below the number 6. We suspect that the button was made in Chicago due to having a Allied Printing Trades, Chicago union bug. There is some faint discoloration at the right and top edge which we feel is inconsequential due the rarity and great design of the pin. This is a great opportunity to acquire a true rarity.
