    Roosevelt & Johnson: A Rare 1912 Progressive "Bull Moose Party" Jugate. This 1ΒΌ" beauty by St. Louis Button Co. is one of the loveliest of all jugate button designs. It was resurrected in 1920 for the famed Cox & Roosevelt jugates produced by that company. One of almost certainly fewer than ten known examples. Of course all Roosevelt & Johnson jugates are rare, with the most available varieties commanding several thousand dollars in top condition. The present example has some minor condition issues, but is a very strong bold example and eminently collectible. It appears perfect, but there is a very slight bumpiness to the surface, sufficiently out of the ordinary that it must be noted on a button of this importance. There is one small surface chip in the field near the edge at 10:30, which detracts minimally. But this example is one that would satisfy most collectors considering its rarity.
