|The pictures show a front and back view of all (12) 1896 Sweet Caporal Cigarettes Advertising Premium Country Flag Celluloid Pin Back Buttons in this lot. These pinback buttons were part of an 1896 collection of pinback buttons that we had acquired. They were used as a premium with packages of Sweet Caporal Cigarettes. They appear to be from the same set. It is unknown how many are in the complete set. Each of these pinback buttons have an image of a different country flag from the Victorian era. There are a Sweet Caporal and Whitehead & Hoag Company advertising paper inserts in the back. In the order pictured, they have the following country flags:|
The paper inserts in the back are marked as follows:
SWEET CAPORAL CIGARETTE
BUTTONS MADE BY
THE WHITEHEAD & HOAG CO.
BADGES & BUTTONS
PAT. JULY 21, 1896
PAT. APRIL 14, 1896
PAT. JULY 17, 1894
The pin back buttons each measure 7/8'' wide. They appear to range from good to excellent condition with some age discoloration or spotting as pictured.
