In 1967, someone traveled to New York City, visited the Statue of Liberty, and bought this two-part pin that was never unwrapped from its original card and cellophane. It measures about 1 1/2 inches across by 1 1/4 inches high. The card measures 2 1/2 by 3 inches.
It's all in excellent unused vintage condition. What else happened that year?
In 1967, major news stories included the Worlds First Heart Transplant, The first ATM, the price of gas was 33 cents, a movie ticket was $1.25, a new car cost an average of $2750., the Dow Jones year end close was 905, and average income was $7300.
The Federal Minimum Wage was increased to $1.40 an hour. In England, a new type of model named Twiggy became a fashion sensation, mini skirts continued to get shorter, and paper clothing was worn by a brave few. In 1967, new Discotheques and singles bars appeared across cities around the world and the Beatles continued to reign supreme with the release of the "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band" album. It was the year coined 'the summer of love' when young teenagers got friendly and smoked pot and grooved to the music of The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and The Byrds. The big movies were The Graduate, Bonnie and Clyde, and Cool Hand Luke. TV shows included The Fugitive and The Monkees and color TV sets became popular as the price came down and more shows were made in color. And we got married.
