    A small sampling of my collection. I've been building it since I was a teenager (25+ years.) Lately I've been concentrating on Hudson-Fulton Celebration (per my previous post,) as well as adding to my Tokio & Hassan Cigarettes sayings pins. I'm also selling off a lot of my less appealing pins to buy more "eye candy," since as I get older I'm finding the collection I want should be prettier instead of larger. I have several more coming in the mail this week including some World's Fair that are very colorful, an awesome painted dog advertising Old Trusty Incubator, etc. I have a few political buttons, but my focus has always been advertising. I try my best to stay somewhere between 1896-1936.

      I've a small box of pinbacks, none of them worth much, I don't think. May have to sort through them and see if there are any of interest to the CW crowd. Thanks for sharing these! If you know, were any pins made for the 1815 Expo in San Diego? It's the centennial this year, San Diego is my hometown.

      Katherine, there were some made for the 1915 San Diego expo! One is really beautiful with a woman sitting on South America reclining so that her hand is on California. It's vibrantly colored and very rennaissance looking. One of my favorites. if you'd like, and you're on facebook, look up my group, Advertising Pinback Button Collectors. It's small right now but some great folks can help you find pins that interest you.

      Thanks, I will check your page out, and hope you can show me the Expo pin!

      Oops, just saw my typo, I meant 1915, not 1815. :)

      Another nice collection,
      Pins like that 1915 expo, Lewis and Clark and Pan Am in my opinion had some of the best graphics.

      I'm kinda the opposite I have a few Advertising but most of mine are Political pinbacks, I started mainly with Advertising and Space however somehow changed my focus to Anti War / Peace and Political.
      (I know Politics and War go more hand and hand)
