The picture shows a view of this 1869 - 1969 Golden Spike Centennial Railroad Advertising Pin Back Button. The pinback has the Historical photograph of the event in blue and text in red. It is marked as follows:

GOLDEN SPIKE CENTENNIAL
1869 - 1969
S.U.P. RAILROAD MUSEUM
CORINNE, UTAH

The pinback button measures 1-7.8'' wide and appears to be in mint condition as pictured. Below here is some information that was found online about this event:

''On July 30, 1965 Golden Spike National Historic Site was created "for the purpose of establishing a national historic site commemorating the completion of the first transcontinental railroad across the United States.''

''Some 690 miles east of Sacramento and 1,087 miles west of Omaha, Golden Spike lies in the northern reaches of the Great Basin Desert and ranges from 4,300 to 4,900 feet above sea level. Located at the site of the driving of the last spike of the first transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869, its paramount purpose is to illustrate the social, economic, and political impacts of the transcontinental railroad on the growth and westward development of the United States.''



''The paramount historical significance of the first transcontinental railroad lies in its effect upon the Far Western frontier. It made the first serious and permanent breech in the frontier, and established the process by which the entire frontier was to be demolished. As the site where the Central Pacific and Union Pacific united to inaugurate cross-country rail travel, Promontory Summit best illustrates the historical meaning, as well as the dramatic construction story, of the first transcontinental railroad.''
