|The picture shows a view of both sides of this Old Sweet Caporal Cigarettes Advertising Premium Celluloid Maine Pin Back Button. The pinback button most likely came as a premium or prize with a pack of cigarettes in the late 1800s or early 1900s. There was one for each state at the time. It has a colorful image of the Maine States Seal with a Farmer, a Sailor, a pine tree, and a moose. There is a paper insert in the back. It is marked on the two sides as follows:|
