How to Determine the Value of a Political Button

It can be difficult to determine the value of a political button. The folks over at WorthPoint have done a story and video about political buttons. The video below is very interesting and features a wide variety of political buttons. There were thousands and thousands of Obama and McCain buttons made for the 2008 Presidential Campaign. It will probably be years before most of these buttons will be worth more than a few dollars.

Here are a few points to consider when determining the value of a political button:

  1. How rare is the button.
  2. Was the button available to the general public or was it just available to a select group of people?
  3. Buttons from the early years of a politicians career are much more valuable than the later years. For example, buttons from President Barack Obama’s run for the State Senate in Illinois are currently more valuable than most of his presidential campaign buttons.
  4. Buttons that are unusual are usually more valuable than conventional buttons.
