    Today I am showing some recently acquired Hippie Era Anti Vietnam War & Drug Culture Pinback Buttons. I have waited a long time to find the gorgeous psychedelic "Peace Now" pinback - and I found someone who offered three - I bought them all. I showed this on Pinterest years ago and has been one of the most popular items I have shown... The drug culture grouping was found in Alaska the others here in New England. In the last photo I show my favorite Hippie Era pins and pinbacks I have on display, one of the subcollections under the Hippie Era umbrella.

      WOW - this was really Wavy Gravy! Have read about him online. An icon of the times... but you sold pinback buttons, probably wish you had kept samples.

      I used to thumb all the time, a different era for sure.
