The American Political Items Collectors (APIC), founded in 1945, is a non profit organization that promotes the study, collection, and preservation of political campaign memorabilia. Every two years, they hold a national convention where both collectors and the general public gather to attend seminars, exhibit collections, and attend auctions to buy, sell, and trade items. In 2016, the convention was held at the Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This special button, featuring the likenesses of co-chairs of the convention Ted Hake and Scott Mussell, was created and distributed at the convention.
