The picture shows a view of all (6) Old Paragon Amusement Park Nantasket Beach Massachusetts Advertising Items in this lot. (4) of these items are different old coupons, one is a bottle opener and one is a pinback button. The bottle opener is in the shape of a seated cat. It is made of steel and it has an applied gold imprinted wooden section. It is marked as follows:

PARAGON PARK, MASS.
JAPAN

The pinback button is imprinted in black and red on a white background. It reads:

I LOVE (Heart) THE PLAZA
AT PARAGON PARK

All four different ticket coupons are believed to be from the 1970s. The first two ticket coupons are identical except that they are printed in different colors on different color paper. These were from Stop & Shop and Bradlees stores for Stop & Shop Days at Paragon Park. The offer on these is $2.00 worth of ride tickets for $1.00.

The other two ticket coupons are basically the same except they are in different colors and have a different price. One has a ten ticket strip at a reduced rate of $2.95 and the other is at $3.25. They each advertise (57) different attractions and one says ''3 New Rides''.

To judge the sizes the two larger coupons each measure about 4-1/4'' x 3''. The coupons appear to be in mint condition, the opener near mint, and the pin back button has some spotting as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some historical background information on Paragon Park:

Paragon Park
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paragon Park circa 1914
Paragon Park was an amusement park located on Nantasket Beach in Hull, Massachusetts. It closed in 1984.

Rides
Among the amusement rides in operation during Paragon Park's history was a traditional style carousel with hand-crafted horses, a bumper cars ride known as ''The Scooters'', a Ferris wheel, a horror themed dark ride called ''Kooky Kastle'', and a giant rollercoaster known as ''The Comet''. There was also a ski lift type ride called the ''Sky Ride'', an automobile themed ride known as ''Turnpike Cars'' (later improved and re-named ''Indy 500''), and a water ride called ''Bermuda Triangle'' (later revamped as ''Congo Cruise'').

Today
Today, the only surviving remnants of Paragon Park on the boardwalk are the historic carousel and clock tower. The rest of the site is devoted to condominium development.
