These cute little penguin pins are a fun bit of cigarette advertising. The pair of penguins are mounted on a card with an artic scene that includes an igloo. The card reads; “Here we are Your Willie & Millie Scatter Pins” and then goes on to promote Kool cigarettes. It looks like the pins are made of a silver colored metal which is painted black and white, appropriate for the birds. They come sealed in the original cellophane package and I would imagine they are from the 1940’s or 1950’s.
One pin measures about 1 ¼” high and the other one is about 1 1/8” high. They both appear to be in good condition, never out of the package. The card measures about 2 ¾” by 4 ½” is in nice condition with minimal wear but the cellophane is brittle, yellowed and has a small hole and a few tears. It also has the original tape on the back which is discolored.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
