    Calvin Coolidge: Pristine Example of the Classic "Vermonter" Badge. Whitehead & Hoag, Newark, New Jersey backmark. This great item, incorporating a 1¼" celluloid portrait within a metal frame and suspended from a pendant and ribbon to an overall length of 3¾", was issued for distribution in the state where Coolidge was born. "Elect him again," it proclaims, so probably issued in anticipation that he would run for re-election in 1928. However, this quiet and private man walked away from what would surely have been a landslide re-election to return to private life. A rare item for a candidate whose buttons and badges tend to have little color and display appeal, and especially desirable and hard to find in this beautiful condition.
