1948 was a tricky year for the Democrats and for the sitting President, Harry Truman. Truman was not popular after being forced to deal with the aftermath of WW2. The liberal and Southern factions of the Democratic party split off to form their own parties – the States’ Rights Party and Progressive Party – which did not help matters. Additionally, Republicans were very confident that they would win, while the Democrats had no false pretenses and were very pessimistic about victory. Thus, Items not rare but far from plentiful. Though there is not a ton of material, there are some very high quality and well valued buttons among the limited output. Jugates will have the highest value.
