Presidential campaign buttons get the popular vote for many collectors. Some of those folks vote with their pocketbooks, too. The historically significant campaign button shown here, a Taft/Sherman pinback from 1908, sold on eBay for $9,200. For one little pin, that's quite impressive. You can learn more about collecting presidential campaign buttons right here on the site. Most of them aren't nearly as costly, but they are pretty darned interesting.

i used to be able to read and print articles on your site. I appreciated them and filed a number of them at my museum. Now I get a teaser but no content. i can’t find a “print” button. So I am disappointed.
Can you tell me what I am not doing right? how can I again read your articles?
Thank you,

Also , who to speak with if they are worth selling to anyone that would be interested in them as well ? Thank you very much , Rita Creason … Greensburg , Ky.
