    Woodrow Wilson: One of the Rarest and Most Memorable Single-Picture Wilson Button Varieties. It is generally the case that when a button comes with a Whitehead and Hoag back paper, it is a widely distributed variety. However, this example is an exception to the rule. This is the plate specimen from Hake's original 1896-1972 volume, page 93, number 36. We cannot recall having seen another example offered for sale. The union labor association and wonderful slogan, "Remember your Friends, Defeat your Enemies", combine with rarity to make this a top Wilson variety. Condition is choice, although for strictest accuracy we note one trivial fine surface scratch in the field.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
