Circular pin features Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt illustrated in profile in color. The figures are seen on a dark blue ground with white five-point stars. There is also a gold border with an eagle extending its wings at the bottom. Within the frame, arching black print is present above the figures that reads "50th Anniversary of the Republican Party." Below, black print on ribbons reads "1854 Lincoln/Roosevelt 1904". The back features a single metal pin used for securing the button to clothing. An inserted paper with print reads "W. & H.
