Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: One-Day Event Button. Teddy Roosevelt did a lot of traveling while President and even afterwards, resulting in many "Welcome" buttons being issued in conjunction with his visits. This highly colorful "Welcome" pin shows him beneath a billowing flag with a cityscape in the background. We are unsure of the locale, as it is not specified. We are told it is Manhattan (flatiron building) and was issued upon TR's return from his African safari in 1910. No matter where it is, this is a beautiful button in great shape, made by Bastian Brothers of Rochester and should be a "Welcome" addition to your collection. It measures 1 1/4".
