The front of the button has man holding a lantern and sitting on a box label 'PRISCO' he is wearing knee high boots, jeans with suspenders, a red and white striped button down shirt, glasses, and a gray brimmed hat. There is a big of grass under him, that cuts off at a corner, with words underneath, and there is a bit of blue sky behind, but this fades to white.

Has a copper colored metal stick on the back, starting at one side and going across the back of the pin and past the edge, for attaching to clothing.
Donation by Caitlin R. Rumery; her mother Stephanie Marie Cornelius Schwartz passed away in 2009 leaving Caitlin with five generations of stuff from her Colorado Family history. There is much more information on the family in the accession file. Adah and Eugene Loback owned the Loback Hardware Store in the historic Windsor Hotel, downtown Denver. This object is from that store.
