JFK/Johnson election campaign badge

this badge represents the beginnings of a huge change in world affairs. The sixties began with a feeling of hope for a better post war future. The devastation of JFK, the end of "Camelot",the "curse of the Kennedy's". All this reshaped the subsequent administrations. This badge was bought in summer 2010 in a flea market in Arizona for $25. It has a detachable Democratic Donkey pin to be worn later on a lapel. JFK's face is a picture of honesty and integrity.
It was made by Green Duck Co. Chicago
