23 skidoo (sometimes 23 skiddoo) is an American slang phrase popularized during the early 20th century, first attested before World War I - It generally refers to leaving quickly, being forced to leave quickly by someone else, or taking advantage of a propitious opportunity to leave, that is, "getting [out] while the getting's good." The exact origin of the phrase is uncertain. 23 skidoo has been described as "perhaps the first truly national fad expression and one of the most popular fad expressions to appear in the U.S," to the extent that "Pennants and arm-bands at shore resorts, parks, and county fairs bore either or the word 'Skiddoo'."
History of campaign buttons: A campaign button is used in the United States during an election as political advertising for a candidate or political party, or to proclaim the issues. Political campaign, memorial and inauguration buttons date as far back as President George Washington. They have taken many forms as the technology to create images and allow mass production has evolved. In the late 18th and first half of the 19th century they were sewn-on clothing buttons, whereas the modern forms typically have pins on the back and are therefore also called pin-back buttons.The first photographic image on pins dates to 1860. Abraham Lincoln and his various opponents used the tintype or ferrotype photo process. The first mass production of metal buttons dates to the 1896 William McKinley campaign for president with "celluloid" buttons with one side of a metal disk covered with paper (printed with the message) and protected by a layer of clear plastic. Since 1916, buttons have also been produced by lithographing the image directly onto the metal disk. A celluloid-type button is fastened to a garment using a pin on the back side of the button (in recently-produced buttons, the pin generally fits into a safety-pin-style catch). A lithograph button may fasten with a pinback or with a metal tab which folds over a lapel or pocket. Buttons have been the most popular form of Presidential, state and local political campaign memorabilia for Americana collectors. Collecting campaign memorabilia can be fun and can be a great history lesson. Campaign buttons, ribbon and badge type items are a great birthday, graduation, Christmas and holiday gift for anyone interested in government, American history or one- Republican, Democrat or Independentwho admires a certain President, First Lady, Senator, Governor or other political leader. It's fantastic retro nostalgia and a great way to own a piece of America's past.

GOOD LUCK & HAVE FUN offerDING! THANKS!On Apr-08-13 at 13:44:39 PDT, seller added the following information:
Say someone asked if this could be a FDR- I have to tell you I could not preclude that but it looks older than the 1930's to be- could always be from New York State or the 1920 election with Cox. So use your best judgment. I will try and get a picture of the reverse up. Thanks for your interest.
