Auction #205 - Part II
Item numbers 1427 through 3167 in auction 205.
1.25" with product title and text "You're Telling Me!" This button features the best color and design of any Mickey button we've ever seen. Reverse has metal stamp of union bug and name of maker Bastian Bros. The bottom curl edge has different company name "The Leo Hart Co." but also names the same town as the maker "Rochester N.Y." Cello surface has extremely trivial light surface wear present on almost every celluloid but visible only with magnification. Under normal viewing, button displays Mint with near perfect centering and fabulous color. In our opinion, the ultimate 1930s Mickey Mouse product ad button. We know of only three examples in all and seven years ago the example from the Hake Collection realized $11,679.00, likely a record for a single non-political button. (M - $5000 to $10000)
