Cartoon Cigarette Pins

These humorous pins were a series of pinback buttons given away with  packs of cigarettes in the 1910s through the 1930s. Cartoonists of the day who drew weekly comics were commissioned by the cigarette companies to create art for these lapel pins. These cigarette pinback buttons featured full-color art on celluloid with the artist's name imprinted on the front, though the earliest pins werein black-and-white only.

Collectors of tobacciana and of Sunday funnies artwork both find these small collectibles of interest.

Size: 15/16"

Artists who created work for these pins include:

bulletRube Goldberg "I'm the Guy ..."
bulletBud Fisher (Mutt and Jeff)
bulletTom McNamara
bulletHal Hoffman
bulletR. Dirks (Kazzenjammer Kids)
