    Rare 1 1/4" Theodore Roosevelt Pinback- Undoubtedly a Souvenir of the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. T.R. was a great backer of the Fair project, and was a ballyhooed visitor, so quite possibly this item was issued for his appearance. Extremely rare at the very least; we cannot recall encountering another. There is a bit of trivial light rim foxing to the front at 3 o'clock. What appears to be staining in the dark field at 2 - 3 o'clock is apparently in the original sepia photo, as it does not extend into the cream-colored border. All-in-all, a specimen which even a condition-conscious collector will be able to live with.
