Politically Speaking

Being an election year this seems like a good time to show off the political buttons collected by the Morans.  I believe the earliest are the Landon and FDR campaign buttons.  Alfred Mossman Landon ran against Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1936.

I think the most interesting is the card with a clear stone in the shape of a drop.  It says Goldwater '64 Droplet.  Symbolizing the Character of the Man: Clear, Clean, Forthright, Valuing Freedom Above All.  Made with 23 k. Gold.

No matter what your political philosophy is just get out and vote!

Oh, and I just noticed, it's not a political button but I included it anyway.  The Martin Tenn Centennial button from 1973.
