Sheriff John Burns gave me some old political buttons today after hearing someone stole a Nixon/Agnew button from me.
Not that the Democratic Sheriff would every possess a Nixon button but he had some for Mario Cuomo, Stan Lundine, John Dyson and Howard Samuels.
Remember him...now some descendent of Samuels is running for something !
I have a small collection of buttons from people I have met....There's a Barclay (not the lad) button....Jacob Javits before it was a convention center....Pataki and Golisano....Even a Jeff Smith button from a year I voted for him.
Of course my most valuable possession is the one most rare....A Scott Gray for Assembly button...See if you can find one of those on E-Bay !
