Ronald Reagan Campaign Buttons are some of the most sought-after buttons in the industry. As a radio announcer, Hollywood movie actor, union organizer, and former Democrat, Reagan won two terms as California Governor. He sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1968 and again in 1976.
He was the Republican presidential nominee in 1980, defeating President Jimmy Carter and again in 1984, defeating former Vice President Walter Mondale. Both of his presidential campaigns were won with landslide margins. At age 70, he was the oldest presidential nominee, a record topped years later by President Donald Trump.
In 1981, he survived an assassination attempt. That same year he nominated Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman justice of the Supreme Court.
Ronald Reagan’s campaign buttons are a great way to learn about history while investing in something that will increases in value for generations to come.
