PoliticalPinbacks

Rose City, Michigan

I've been collecting pinback button's for 40 some years now on and off (mostly on) I started out with a few anti Vietnam war button's I picked up while attending proI've been collecting pinback button's for 40 some years now on and off (mostly on) I started out with a few anti Vietnam war button's I picked up while attending protests (as well as the Ann Arbor Hash Bash) back in the day then for many years I just wanted any non political but historical like Mercury and Apollo pins then political button's and the last few years my focus has gone back to Vietnam pins both pro and anti war. This whole thing I can thank or blame on a neighbor from when I was a kid in the early 1960s, he had a 4 foot by 16 foot board covered with button's next to his pool table that I was always in awe of I ran into him in 2001 at a funeral he was behind me but I knew that voice so as I turned I said "It's all your fault ya know" once he understood what I was talking about we had a little chuckle he was very interested in hearing about my collection and I was very sad to hear his entire collection went missing during his last move. BTW I am AKA MidMichBidder (on eBay) (Read more)
