|The picture shows a view of all (6) Old John A. Volpe Republican Political Campaign Pins in this lot. All of these are believed to be from the 1960s. There is one metal pin with an elephant, one Massachusetts state pin, and (4) pinback buttons in this lot. The pin back buttons are identical. They each picture John Volpe and are marked ''VOTE THE MAN - VOTE VOLPE''. To judge the sizes the pin back buttons each measure 1'' wide. These appear to be in near mint and mint condition as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some Historical background information on John A. Volpe that was found online:|
