Given as a souvenir at the 1901 Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, NY, this 1 1/4" celluloid pinback button advertises Swift's Premium Hams and Bacon. What a great way for a company to get word out about their product, right? The Pan that the pig sits in was a common symbol used to represent the "Pan"-American Exposition - which was really for North America, South America, and of course - the Panama Canal.
