Free Charles Manson [pinback button]

Free Charles Manson [pinback button]

Philadelphia: Horn Co, 1969. 1.75 inch diameter pin, intrinsic rust stains. These pins were ordered by a staff member of Vortex, a Lawrence, Kansas underground newspaper, who had them manufactured by the Horn Company, which was then a prominent maker of pins for activist causes. Vortex published an article at the same time these were issued, asserting that Manson had been framed by the government. These pins were intended as a fundraiser for the newspaper, though they did not prove very popular. We obtained the final stash from the original Kansas activist, who now feels somewhat sheepish about his advocacy for this particular cause. Unfortunately all of the pins are marred by rust stains. The pin in the accompanying photo is the actual one you will get.
