Description

    John W. Davis: Most Uncommon 1924 "Teapot Dome" Variety. The U.S. Capitol is superimposed over the image of a teapot. The Teapot Dome scandal was a major embarrassment to the Harding administration, and the Democrats sought to maximize its political impact in the next presidential election. However, the issue gained little traction against the candidacy of Coolidge, who was personally untainted by the backroom dealings. But modern day political collectors remain grateful for the entertaining campaign items inspired by the affair. While the ¾" button offered here is listed by Hake in his 1920 - 1976 volume, page 22, no. 2020, we cannot recall seeing an example for sale. Choice condition.
