Item Description

1.25" with no maker name or backpaper and with relatively dark layer of brown oxidation on the metal back but no pitting. Only the most trivial touch of age tone around the reverse collet with the front of the piece displaying totally clean and Mint with high gloss and perfect centering. In addition to the quoted text, design includes outline of the Shadow in his classic pose with large hat and cape. The only additional text is the designation "Room 515." This is the only known example of this button which is pictured in Hake's Pop Culture Guide as item #SHA-13. No one seems to know what inspired the creation of this button but it is a most special vintage Shadow item. (M - $5000 to $10000)
