    Description

    Teapot Dome: A Delightful 1" 1924 Cartoon Button Lampooning this Notorious Political Scandal. It shows the Republican elephant being "cooked" in a teapot labeled "Teapot Dome." The reference is to a scandal over federal oil leases which brought down Harding's Interior Secretary Albert Fall and put a cloud of corruption over the entire Harding administration. Both the Democrats and the Progressives led by LaFollette would emphasize this issue in the 1924 campaign. This is a very rare and colorful variety, and in great condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
