    Spectacular Huge, 4" 1908 Taft Pinback
    Another plate example from Hake's original 1896-1972 book (page 82, item 46), this very rare beauty would be the centerpiece in even the finest Taft collection. Condition is super, which is rarely the case on a large button of this era. Only for the sake of strictest accuracy do we note one pinpoint rim spot at 1:00 and a very trivial imperfection on the back edge of the celluloid, not even close to being visible from the front, at 6:00. Concave metal back as made, with original pin for wearing.

    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.
