Pinback button promoting John W. Davis for president, 1924. Oppenheimer & Shah, Washington, D.C.

Depicts the distinctive Wyoming rock formation that gave its name to a nearby oil field at the center of a bribery scandal in the Harding administration. While President Coolidge was in no way implicated, the bribes having been paid to a corrupt cabinet official during his predecessor's tenure, numerous "Teapot Dome" items were produced for the 1924 campaign against Coolidge and in support of his Democratic rival, the "Honest Days with Davis" button being the best known and most sought after by collectors. Pristine examples don't come on the market often, and the present example is the finest we've seen, lacking any defect, perfectly centered, and retaining its back paper. Multiple auction records for comparable examples in the $1500 range, and as high as $2000.

An investment piece for the advanced political button collector!
