Pinback button promoting Barack Obama for president, 2008.
This unusual design was commissioned by the local Democratic Party in Rockford, but was pulled from circulation almost immediately, due to concerns that the sock monkey (a toy the town is famous for inventing) could be construed as racist. Our source got them directly from the party chairman, who was going to have them destroyed. The entire production was 250, of which we acquired the uncirculated remainder. A button that will surely go up in value over time.
