These pins usually sell for $10 - $20 each in their present conditions. So, if you're interested, this is the deal of the day for you!!!

This collection of 6 pinbacks is sure a blast from the past! These pins were issued as premiums in boxes of Kellogg's Pep Cereal in the 1940s. This is the premier character pin set of the era, featuring all the popular comic strip characters of the day. Each pin measures 3/4 inches in diameter and features a portrait image of a comic character or adventure hero, with an advertisement for Kellogg's "Pep" cereal on the reverse.

We found these at a local auction, and they're so neat, I want to start collecting. But, alas, I already collect so much I can't start another!

Below is the description for each. All are clearly dated along the edge 1946.

Henry Oompah - from comic 'Henry'. The pin's color is great and there is no rust or scratches. There is a large dent in this one.

Mamie - from comic Moon Mullins. This pin does have some minor scratches fro age and there is a spot of something that looks like paint that I couldn't get off. No rust or dents.

Don Winslow - comic Don Winslow in the Navy. This pin has no rust, dents or major scratches and the color is great.

Daddy Warbucks - comic Orphan Annie. No rust or dents and the color is great. There are a few scratches (see photo) and the pin is gone from the back.

Maggie (2 pins) - comic Bringing up Father. Both pins are in fine shape, no dents and no major scratches. One has no rust, the other has the tiniest bit of rust along the back edge.
