Anyone know about this item?  Has a Copyright mark on the reverse too!

I'm sure someone out there will know. Maybe coinsbygary I have read his blog's he knows a lot about medals. Maybe he has a book. That's a well known man I'm sure someone will know . Lots of luck!

Sorry, I don't know anything about it. However, judging by the solder joint on the reverse, it looks homemade. I could be wrong. Good luck.

Thanks all.  I suppose this was probably a pin-back item, and the pin is gone.  I thought it was some strange design at first, but as Longstrider suggests it does look like a homemade solder mark.

I did a little research and the man on it was the Democratic Nominee for President from 1928, you can read more about him here:

To answer your question, looks like a poorly made campaign button to me.
