I was somewhat reticent to post this, it has a blackface caricature on one side. Despite my Confederate themed collectables, I am NOT a racist by any means. You can ask my numerous black friends. My neighbors on both sides are black and have seen my collectables and have no problem with them. One of my neighbor's friends is a huge DOH fan in fact. My other neighbor Sam unfortunately had a stroke and has trouble getting around. I watch over and help him like he was family. He also was a keyboard blues player, I'll try to post some of his stuff. I just wanted to express this before commenting on these items.
I guess this is clown-face also because of the other side. It's a made in England Woolworth's exclusive. I don't know what era, I'm guessing because of the blackface it must be 50's or before. I also shared a '52 NAACP Member pin. I have some MLK items, that are packed somewhere, if I can dig them out I'll post them.
