    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: Welcome Button. A true classic,this celluloid button is 1 ¼". It pictures Uncle Sam extending "Welcome" to Teddy Roosevelt upon his return from an African safari in 1910. The background shows the snow-capped peaks and timberland that TR was instrumental in conserving for future generations. The Whitehead & Hoag back paper indicates this button was given away compliments of C. D. Kenny & Company. The button displays in mint condition, although we note an inconsequential ¼" celluloid split on the bottom curl, not noticeable from the front. From the Geary Vlk Collection.
