Origin: These are original campaign buttons in wearable condition from Dwight D. Eisenhower's first and second presidential campaigns against Adlai Stevenson in 1952 and 1956. The buttons refer to Eisenhower as "Ike," a nickname given to him as a child that stuck with him through adulthood. Each pin includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
Eisenhower first gained major recognition during World War II as the supreme commander of Allied forces in Western Europe, where he was responsible for leading the 1944 D-Day invasion. After the war, Eisenhower went on to serve as Army Chief of Staff, president of Colombia University, and Supreme Commander of NATO before successfully running for president as a Republican in 1952 and 1956.
In office, Eisenhower's main goals were to reduce both deficit spending and the spread of communism. In doing so, he notably opposed the isolationist policies that many politicians took after World War II. However, Eisenhower also opposed McCarthyism and had a more moderate view in domestic policy, continuing New Deal agencies started by Franklin D. Roosevelt and signing the Civil Rights Act of 1957. Today, Eisenhower is generally considered to be in the upper tier of U.S. presidents by academics and scholars.

Actually, many relics are able to be owned by anyone.
Typically, museums only want to display items that are either very rare or incredibly well preserved. This leaves many items that don't make the cut, and these are able to be owned by individuals.
While the items we sell aren't "museum grade," they still carry with them the same amount of history and uniqueness. Each relic was still hand made by a person, hundreds or even thousands of years ago.
One of our core values is not to damage or alter any of the artifacts we sell.
History needs to be preserved—after all, there is a limited amount of it that survives—but it is also something to be shared with the masses. For this reason, we put our relics in sturdy display cases that are safe to handle, but are mindful that someday the relic may need to be taken out again.
No glue or resin holds the items in place. Instead, we're developed our own method for holding the relics securely in their displays using pressure alone. In fact, any of our relics can be removed in their original condition by simply opening the display case.
