PoliticalPinbacks

Huron National Forest, N.E. Michigan

40 some years collecting button's I started out with anti war button's picked up while attending protests (Protesting the war not the troops BTW) back in the day the40 some years collecting button's I started out with anti war button's picked up while attending protests (Protesting the war not the troops BTW) 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, 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.
