Additional Information: 

This button is an interesting jugate that has both Franklin D. Roosevelt and Wendell Willkie on the same button. Typically, a jugate has a president and vice president candidate on the button, but this "saleman's pin" plays it safe and has both democratic and republican presidential candidates. They ran against each other in 1940 with FDR winning the election.
