This little tin pin back is an old premium from Quaker cereals. This one features Guy Madison, a Hollywood idol of movies and television. He was most popular in the late 1940’s and 1950’s with movies such as Since You Went Away and Till the End of Time and on television in the series The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok. Along the bottom edge of the front it reads; A Selznick Star. Inside the back it reads; Quaker Puffed Wheat & Rice - Shot From Guns. Along the edge you can make out part of Made in U.S.A.. This is a lithographed tin pin, not celluloid, and these were often pinned to felt beanies. I believe this is from the late 1940’s.
It measures about ¾” in diameter and is in good condition with minor wear.
