7/8" celluloid pinback with a bulldog inside a cylinder. Farming equipment companies just don't advertise like this anymore! The Litchfield Manufacturing Co. of Waterloo, Iowa put a back paper insert behind this pin telling consumers that they could write for prices and terms on the Litchfield Manure Spreader. Just the pin I'd want to wear around town. ;)

@markymarco02 Thanks Marco! Yeah, in the early 1900's, a lot of people didn't get newspapers, so the companies gave out pins as premiums with different products. Farming equipment was a big advertising winner in the pinback world. But sadly, a lot of these pins weren't well cared for, so they're a bit hatd to find in good condition.

How interesting! I don't think I've seen farming equipment advertising in general, but still cool to see!
