The Republican Party are reproducing vintage campaign buttons in the run up to the 2016 General Election-much to the annoyance of political memorabilia collectors.

The American Political Items Collectors group are complaining that the reproduction of the badges lessens the value of the original campaign buttons and declared the act 'unnecessary' as the legitimate buttons are already easy to find. 

The APIC are concerned that the likeness is too great to the originals-meaning that in 5-10 years time it might be nigh on impossible to tell the real from the fake.
