Highly Unusual 1 3/4" Button from Teddy Roosevelt's 1900 Vice Presidential Campaign This distinctive design was produced for the Sept. 19 reunion of a Michigan cavalry unit. Many such reunions took place in the summer and fall of 1900, and most turned into rambunctious rallies for the popular war hero who was seeking the Vice Presidency as McKinley's runningmate. This development was clearly foreseen by the button's designer, who put an image of a clearly-recognizable TR leading a charge at the center! Interestingly, this complex image is an exact reduction of a very familiar large color print. We had never seen it so employed before, but some quick research discloses at least one more known example. 1900 TR items are highly prized, especially when they show him in Rough Rider uniform. This button's unique design and extreme rarity make it a prize indeed! Condition is choice, including the distinctive back paper.
