    EXTREMELY RARE BUTTON FIND! YIPPEE!! (Pics Added)

    Honestly, when I got home I was feeling blue for only finding two flatties... That is until I cleaned them and read the back of one.... PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON 1829.
    I've never seen a button like that, and after googling it, I found this:

    The following Andrew Jackson Button was the first campaign button used in a Presidential Election.
    The Jacksonian Democrats were keen on bringing their candidate to the attention of the voting
    public and did not overlook the use of buttons as a means of advertising their candidate. Although
    hampered by the current fashion, which permitted not the least ruffle on the fronts of buttons,
    found a way of putting over their slogan on the back of the buttons. The buttons were stamped as
    appears below "ANDREW JACKSON PRESIDENT 1829". This began the use of campaign buttons
    in the promoting of candidates. --- Uniform Buttons by David F. Johnson

    The Andrew Jackson Button is an extremely rare button with a RV of 250. This indicates a very
    low number of such buttons known. These are shown in the Alberts Book as PC83.

    Well done, Dave— an outstanding find!

    The most recent edition (2004) of Hake's political buttons price guide lists it at $325, and you can bet it's better than that today!

    Congrats Anyway.

    Thanks for the replies everyone! I'll have a picture tonight tonight. My scanner is down due to Vista not playing right with it, and my camera just doesn't do close ups very well. I'm going to stop by a camera shop and have them take a few pics for me.

    Best button I have ever found! Its funny, I dug it and thought it was just another flat button. It sat in my treasure pouch for 2 or 3 days before I rinsed the dirt off of it... Imagine my surprise!
