Auction #204 - Part II
Item numbers 1447 through 3204 in auction 204
Each piece is of thin embossed tin featuring the photo portrait surrounded by an embossed gold wreath. Reverse has name of each person. A small folded tab is on the reverse with a straight pin inserted through two tiny openings. As we list the names we will mention the few which are missing the pin. Unless specified the pin is present. In order top to bottom and left to right we have Elvis Presley (couple of very tiny dents but still displays Exc.), Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Sal Mineo (missing pin and portion of tab), Johnnie Ray, Pat Boone (missing pin and portion of tab plus small oxidation on reverse), Johnny Mathis, Paul Anka, John Saxon, Eartha Kitt (small oxidation on reverse), Sarah Vaughan, Jo Stafford, Connie Francis, Peggy Lee, Rosemary Clooney. In addition to any noted defects most of the fronts of the pieces have a few very tiny scattered pinpoint dots off or a couple of 1/16" scratches but nothing serious and the group displays glossy and VF to Exc. This same bubble gum company issued similar badges in sets depicting movie stars. This group is c. 1956.
