William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States. Collectors seeking memorabilia from his Presidency will see a huge and quite famous number of celluloid buttons. The celluloid button was invited a few years prior to the 1896 election. Therefore, 1896 was an epic year for the campaign button, and there a large variety of themed McKinley buttons available for McKinley enthusiasts to choose from. Many are humorous and have intricate and artistic design. The big issues of the time – the gold/silver standard and foreign policy imperialism – are definitely reflected in the campaign materials. Even though buttons from the Election of 1896 will be some of the oldest on the market, the huge quantity of them generally drives prices down. They remain popular among collectors, however.
