My mother gave me a political button before her death ... from Wm Jennings Bryan/John Kern 1908 run for the presidency. It was Bryan's third and final run for the White House. It has a unique filigree that frames the button. There are no scratches or discolorations (other than a little aging) on the front. She reached out to a contact with the LBJ Library who confirmed the button was from 1908. It's so amazing to have such a well kept piece of history. Mr. Bryan, Mr. Kern, and my mother have all passed away, but this button is still hanging on.
