    Description

    Debs & Stedman: Statue of Liberty Jugate. 1" button featuring portraits of the 1920 Socialists flanking the Statue of Liberty. Debs was, at the time, a convict in an Atlanta penitentiary, so he was hoping to gain his "liberty". There was also a strong anti-immigration feeling in the US in 1920, so the imagery had double meaning. Made by Pilgrim Specialty Company of Malden, Massachusetts. A fine example.
    From the collection of Ed Sullivan.
