    Very Rare 1 1/4" Coolidge for President Button Variety While the photo is one seen on other Coolidge button varieties, this version is actually quite different. It is black and white rather than sepia, and there are white ornamentation lines on either side of his portrait along the rim. We are quite certain we have never handled this variety before, and not at all certain we have seen it at all. Condition is great but for a cello separation along the collet at 9:00, just barely discernible when the button is viewed head-on. Note the local Boston manufacturer; perhaps this was issued as a "hopeful" button to promote Coolidge rather than for the general election.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
