Bought this "STOP THE DAMS" pin, at an antique shop while on a roadtrip to visit family. I bought it because I am interested in environmental issues (and obviously old items).

I assumed that the phrase on the button was meant as propaganda to stop the damming of rivers and the pin itself looks fairly old.

The back of the pin has a paper insert that repeatedly states

Anyone know the time period of the pin or any information about it or anything pertaining to it?

Two pictures are attached - Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Are there any pin or propaganda experts/collectors out there?
    If you know even the slightest clue about this pin, please comment! This is driving me crazy! Have been looking online and have found nil, not even a ballpark date.
