State of Missouri Ballot Measure Badge

SOLD ON AUG 26, 2018 FOR: $7,500.00

Woman’s Suffrage: Unbelievable State of Missouri Ballot Measure Badge. Truly wonderful 1.25″ button picturing a “Votes For Women” flag with ten stars, inscribed “Missouri Next Amendment No. 13”. It hangs from a black on yellow silk ribbon with image of a suffragette blowing a trumpet while holding a flag with eleven stars (ten stars bunched together, representing the states which allowed women to vote, and a larger star, representing Missouri, waiting “on deck” to join their ranks). Brass hanger at top with safety pin attachment. Acme Advertising Novelty Company of Kansas City back paper. Some very minor stains at the extreme edges. We have never seen an example for sale and know of only one other specimen, permanently housed in a Kansas City educational institution (lacking the ribbon). In our mind, this is the absolute BEST woman’s suffrage button! Description via Heritage Auctions –

More challenges to our efforts to celebrate the Centennial and Centennial Plus of women’s right to vote. We are committed to celebrating safely and ask you to join us in that effort. Outdoor events will continue as planned, but mask wearing may be requested if the tour groups are especially large. Slide shows will have limited seating to allow social distancing. Mask wearing is expected. Febb Burn Banquet will go on, but all those attending in person must be fully vaccinated. Masking will be necessary except when seated at your table or actively eating or drinking. We are diligently pursuing a virtual option for those who have not yet or cannot get vaccinated. Please check this site periodically as this policy may be updated as necessary.
