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.
