    Multicolor 1 1/4" 1904 Teddy Roosevelt Button, with TR in Full Rough Rider Uniform This great design is absolutely one of the most popular of all button designs. Always scarce it has appreciated steadily over the years (we note an example on a 1970 Tom Slater sales list at $17.50). For some reason this variety is prone to come with foxing; about 3/4 of the examples we have seen over the years are imperfect, and there is a greater collector tolerance for this on this particular item. The present copy has a fine general appearance, but does have some light rim staining which just barely creeps around to the front at 10:00-12:00. Overall an above average example.
