Pinback button with portrait of a man, decorated with flags, red school houses, the Bible and emblem of United American Mechanics, c. 1910. Metal shell backing with slots to attach easel (missing). The portrait button enjoyed a brief vogue in the first decades of the 20th century, and could be ordered through photo studios. This is by far the most graphically stunning example we have encountered.
