1896 was an epic year for the campaign button, and there a large variety of McKinley buttons available. Portrait buttons are generally not as valuable as jugates, which usually feature both the Presidential and Vice Presidential nominee. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, with colorful and more intricate design seeing higher values. Even though buttons from the Election of 1986 will be some of the oldest on the market, the huge quantity of them generally drives prices down. They remain popular among collectors, however. Because of the wide price range for these buttons, please contact us for a more accurate assessment of your McKinley button.
