#166 Wood National Recovery Act

This rare pressed wood button is from the short two-year time period in U.S. history when the National Recovery Act was in place, from 1933 until 1935, when it was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. The March 1956 issue of NBS includes an article about this button on p. 88. The front side shows a sunflower-like design. The reverse shows an eagle and the NRA stamping and a metal loop shank.
