    Roosevelt & Curley: A Dramatic Large Coat-Tail Jugate From the 1932 Campaign. This 2 1/8" design is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful of all jugate buttons. It also comes in a Roosevelt-Garner version, deemed by most to be the best FDR jugate. Curley was the mayor of Boston and a powerful political boss. Usually with buttons of this type the local candidate is seeking to ride on the coat-tails of the presidential candidate. In the case of this issue, it might well have been the other way around.

    It comes in two versions, the other reading "Economic Security" at the top. This is the scarcer version, in excellent shape but for several trivial surface bumps.
