The first campaign buttons that were used extensively for campaigning appeared in the 1896 presidential campaign between William McKinley and William Jennings Bryan. They were made by placing a thin piece of celluloid protective covering over paper and then wrapping it around a metal disk. Many colorful designs were created during the golden age (1896 - 1916) of campaign buttons cheap.
The origin of the celluloid election campaign button pins comes shortly after the invention of celluloid itself, in the 1870s. In the 1880s, celluloid made its first appearance on political memorabilia, pins, and political lapel device in thick pieces that were molded to look like candidates or as frames around cardboard photos. It is the use of celluloid in thin clear sheets that made the modern political buttons and pins a reality. Celluloid buttons first appeared in the election of 1896. Although not the first manufacturer of celluloid buttons and pins, it was the company of Whitehead and Hoag of New Jersey that popularized the button with their patented design. The period between 1896 and the mid- twenties is generally considered to be the "classic" period of button and pins design. In this period, some of the most beautiful and ornate buttons and pins were manufactured. The most expensive celluloid buttons and pins are also from this period. Buttons and pins had several different back designs. The Whitehead and Hoag type has a hollow back, which typically contained a small piece of paper with the manufacturer's advertising during the classic period. Back papers are no longer used.
