    McKinley & Roosevelt: An Awesome, Mammoth 10" Jugate Button in Incredible Condition. Only a handful of these largest of political buttons survived, and most, like the adjacent example, suffered significant trauma. Celluloid cracks seem particularly endemic to these large buttons. The condition of the present example is simply breathtaking, so vivid that the red, white, and blue ribbon appears almost three-dimensional. The celluloid surface retains its original sheen, and even the back lacks the surface oxidation usually seen on the metal elements of buttons of this period. For strictest accuracy we note that when the button is turned back and forth in the light, several fine surface scratches appear, and there is a minor bit of flattening on the rim at 12:45. Nonetheless, the overall condition is nothing short of spectacular. The original suspension loop is present on verso, as well as the fittings to attach a pin or easel. Diameter 10". This attention- getter should appeal to the most sophisticated collectors of political buttons and display items alike.
