This little tin pin back is an old premium from Quaker cereals. This one features Tim Holt, an actor especially known for his roles in Hollywood Westerns during the 1940’s including the movie The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Along the bottom edge of the front it reads; An RKO Star. Inside the back it reads; Quaker Puffed Wheat & Rice - Shot From Guns. Along the edge it reads; 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 1940’s.
It measures about ¾” in diameter and is in good condition with minor wear.
