Nixon Presidential Campaign Pin

Description (Brief)
The Scovill Manufacturing Company of Waterbury, Connecticut produced this campaign pin around 1968. Scovill was established in 1802 as a button manufacturer and is still in business today. Scovill was an early industrial American innovator, adapting armory manufacturing processes to mass-produce a variety of consumer goods including buttons, daguerreotype mats, medals, coins, and pins.
This circular white button bears the text “NIXON’S THE ONE!” in red. The button has a pin on the back, allowing it to be worn. Richard Nixon successfully ran for President on the Republican ticket in 1968.
