    I just returned from a 1960s themed birthday party where I dug out my Nixon pin to wear (it’s a ’72 button, but he did run in ’60 & ‘68). So, before I put my political pins away, I thought I’d share them. I don’t usually collect political ephemera, but buy interesting items if I run across them.

    Fob from Teddy Roosevelt’s 1904 campaign
    Calvin Coolidge 1924 campaign button
    A couple Herbert Hoover 1928 or 1932 campaign buttons – anyone know which?
    Franklin D Roosevelt 1932, 1936 or 1940 campaign button – anyone know which?
    Thomas Dewey 1944 campaign button, when John Bricker was his running mate.
    Dwight Eisenhower “Let’s back Ike” campaign button from 1956
    George Wallace campaign button from 1968
    Richard Nixon campaign button from 1972

    And – a mystery candidate from sometime after 1898, the patent date on the back of the button. I thought it was Taft when I got it, but the picture does not match – Does anyone know this bespectacled, mustachioed late 19th/early 20th century presumed politician?
