LEGO Advertising Pins

Advertising pins were a popular and cheap way of advertising during the late 1800ís to the mid 1900ís. Pins were used to promote everything from transportation and gasoline to cleaning products and medicines. Advertising pins often featured cartoon characters and were handed out at stores. On the political side, pins were given away at campaign rallies. Today vintage pins are hard to find because consumers simply wore them and threw them away. The LEGO pins are given away somewhere between 1950 and 1975. The exact date of issue we have not yet identified.
