What IS this? And how old is it?


Recommended Posts

A junk shop score, found at the bottom a basket of 25-cent campaign buttons.
What is it? There’s no loop for it to hang as a medal. It’s a little smaller than a half-dollar.
And how old is it? And if it's not a medal, what's it for?

There was a Fleetwood album in 1961 titled Drum Beauty ... could there be a link?

Brian ... was Drum Beauty an actual show? ... the 61 record is a composite of various times by Chicago, Garfield, Madison and others ... could there be a connection to these pins?

Drum Beauty was the actual name of the contest.  They had lots of memorabilia, including record albums, buttons, etc.  The show first started Aug. 5, 1956 (Cavaliers, Madison, Kilties).

For many years the contests (into the 1990s) were held two consecutive nights to accommodate the large crowds.  The show lasted well into the 21st century.
