  1. Sure, I try to post the basic facts and hope to peak interest I'm glad the button peaked yours and you did some digging. Peace
  2. Thanks or the Love, added info and link Celiene well stated, I should have at least said he was acquitted, I enjoy the GI movement buttons and even tho it was a dark time it was an important part of o...
  3. Nice find, they sure built things to last in those days, I bet if kept out of the weather it will look the same in another 110 years
  4. Nice item the near the end of the good ole days or "daze" I met Glen Frey in the mid 70s as it turned out we "may have" bought some of the same "things" from the same guy north of Detroit (Royal Oak) ...
  5. Great collection! Do you need a black light to show off Vaseline Glass or does it glow like that in natural light? I always liked seeing it just never knew the 1st thing about it.
  6. Thanks for all the Loves vetraio50 I can always count on you.
  7. Happy to share racer, Sad much of the world is still just as violent today.
  8. Thanks 4 the Love(s)
  9. Yep we didn't dick dick soon enough & Johnson saw the writing on the wall so I guess he dropped out before we could dump him but the end result was the same, looking back at it now if we kept Johnson ...
  10. Thanks for the love vetraio50 & SpiritBear
  11. Thanks for the info Chrisnp at 1st look I was thinking Gettysburg also however that is in PA so? it would have been nice if the ribbon was intact but for a dollar I can't complain.
  12. I think about everyone over 50ish remembers seeing these but very few still have one nice find, I recall smoking while in the hospital now ya can't even smoke in the parking lot (a good thing I guess)...
  13. Thanks for the Love, There's a ton of info about it online Racer and a link at the bottom to 1 of the songs about it. I love the design of this 1 too I think the placing of flowers into the barrel's...
  14. Thanks racer and a good part of the reason I like to collect buttons they show a little snap shot of history, Too bad we seem to repeat war part. Peace
  15. Here's a photo of Camp Meyer from April 1913 with the band shown in the center. https://www.loc.gov/item/2007664362/
  16. Love it - Plus that was the year my Dad was born, I think this was for the 2d Provisional Brigade as they were there in 1913
  17. I don't know any more then what you wrote however I think you are correct on all counts and yes the V was used widely for Victory it looks to be in great condition in all a very nice find, The back pa...
  18. Happy to racer4
  19. "The traumatic era of errors" that fits, It was only a few later that Congress passed a bill saying (in short) we would not get into a war that we didn't intend on winning if that tells us anything bu...
  20. That doesn't make us sound any younger, I was just a kid yesterday where did it go
  21. Thanks Collecto it has taken some time to find them in this condition but I enjoy the hunt and I'm a total mint freak when it comes to buttons although some of the more rare ones I replaced with near...
  22. Snob = Paris Hilton The Olson Twins Tori Spelling lol
  23. P.S. - Define effete: lacking strength, courage, or spirit
  24. Hey blunderbuss2 how ya been The Snob buttons came from protesters fighting back to Vice President Spiro Agnew's depiction of the student anti-war protesters of the 60s as "effete intellectual sno...
  25. I can't think of one with that exact date but I'll check my buttons to be sure, Been looking for any from my birthday too.
  26. That would be a good button to inlay a 1908 coin I should talk to Bob (the Guardfrog designed / owner) about that. Thanks Thomas
  27. Yo Yo lookin good GREAT collection
  28. I had both of these cars well very close to them anyhow the 1970/71 Buick Skylark is very close to mine but I had the 71 hard top. the Nova I agree with 1973 not sure but I think they changed in 7...
  29. I had one of these banks in the ? early 60s forgot all about it until seeing this Thanks. Mom sold it in one of her many garage sales, ALL my cool stuff got sold in those darn sales ;)
  30. Don't know much about them sorry but there too cool, Leader of the pack song comes to mind lol.
  31. Great collection and very nicely displayed, Cool stuff.
  32. VERY nicely done I bet that took some time and no doubt real skill, Likely back then they could find shells washed up on shore all the time. Makes me want to try carving a shell (have a few layin ar...
  33. Cool bike, love the tank, suspension and all the chrome it reminds me a bit of the Stingray I had with the high handle bars, banana seat, tall (3 speed) shift and slick rear tire, I hadn't thought of ...
  34. Love this style bike and the sprocket to just too cool, Nice ride.
  35. Nice find Ron sorry for your loss, My dad was also a WWII Vet. Army Air Corp. Its a lapel pin (pinback) but also has a loop that I've not seen on any other pinback my guess would be that the loop wa...
  36. I remember using it to crack the Walnuts I got in my Christmas stocking back then we got nuts and maybe a Orange or the likes in our stockings, Others find that rather strange but it's something I rec...
  37. My Mom had one, I'm not sure where they were made but I noticed you are in Michigan like me and like my parents were so maybe from a tourist town in state? I think one of my sisters has it. By chan...
  38. Thanks for the Love's The button's statement or mine Nancy lol Thanks utterlyunique I've looked for a long time until it finely came up on AndersonAmericana last month
  39. VERY cool, can you tell what it is painted on? looks a but like slate or steel.
  40. I think that is a good part of the reason why I collect so many of the button's from the 60s and 70s Seems we didn't learn from history or at least not enough of us so here we are DOOMED to repeat it ...
  41. NOT sure but my guess is they maybe used as reflectors on Stop and/or Railroad signs?
  42. Time to sound stupid: I found some reference in old books but they just don't seem to fit, I thought either Worthpoint or Hakes would have something but nope, Native Americans had several types of Ea...
  43. The 1st is a 1924 Girl Scouts Of America button, The Eagle I'm not so sure about I have a few thoughts but learned if you don't want to sound stupid Don't say anything, SO I research my thoughts a bi...

  46. Thanks Whit, But my collection is far from the best however being a mint freak most the buttons I do have are in good condition and I've been listing more and selling off much of the quantity (and goo...
  47. I deleted some comments, Some of these buttons (still do and) were meant to bring out Political views
  48. Looks to be in great condition too I love the fancy boarders that you just don't see on modern pins and Teddy is always a favorite, Very nice.
  49. Thanks for the love all. and thanks for the nice comment Whitman it took a while to gather them but time well spent or spent anyhow.
