Description

    PRISTINE EXAMPLE OF THE SOUGHT AFTER COLOR TEDDY ROOSEVELT "EQUALITY" BUTTON. This 1¼" beauty is as nice as any example we’ve ever seen! Even the back paper is mint. There are several renown varieties of this choice item but this is one in color, the others being sepia or black and white. It is believed that the first version of this item which depicted Teddy at the dinner table with Booker T. Washington (in a highly controversial move Roosevelt had invited Washington to the White House), was put out as a pro-Teddy item. But some of the later versions, showing him dining with a generic black man, may have been designed to incite racial prejudice against TR. This is one of the most desired of all political button designs, a must for any serious collector.
