Spiro Agnew Nixon Button

Submitted by Jeff:
"Aggies" is the nickname for Texas A&M University. Maroon is the A&M school color. A&M students and alums are rabid collectors of all kinds of aggie memorabilia, and I haven't seen any of this particular button for sale. I'm the original owner, and I believe it's from the 68 campaign when I was still in college in Texas, but it might be the 72 campaign. 2 1/4" Diameter. Excellent condition with some age wear on edges as shown in the picture. Back has some evidence of light wear but no rust and very shiny, pin is like new

Woodrow Wilson Poster

Submitted by Lynn:
We have recently acquired the Woodrow Wilson campaign poster shown in the attached photos, and have been trying to authenticate it. We have inspected the poster and there are no markings/stamps/dates/etc on it. The only text is what you see in the photos under President Wilson's photo. Obviously, if it is authentic, it would have been from the 1912 Presidential Election, since the poster states that he is "Governor of New Jersey" at the time.
