Default Does anyone collect non-sports pins?

I think there's probably a few people besides me here that collect non-sports pins.I'd be interested in seeing what everyone else is collecting.My favorites are from the 60's and 70's.I like counter-culture,Vietnam,music,civil rights and other assorted pins from that era.
If you look closely at the Jerry Garcia pin,you can see where he's missing his finger.
The line going up and down on MLK's face is from the bag it's in,it's not the pin.

more assorted pins...

The soldier P.F.C. Milton Lee Olive III was the first black person to get a medal of honor from the Vietnam war.He threw himself on a hand grenade to save others lives.

I'm not really into political pins,I just don't know enough about them.I have a few,but I'm sure they're pretty common.I picked them up in lots that I bought.
If you feel like posting photos of your pins,I'd be interested in seeing them and others probably would be too.

Any Comic Book movie fans?I'm going to see Black Panther tonight,so I thought I'd post a couple of Marvel pins.
The Spiderman pin is a limited edition of 300 made by Marvel in 2007.He slides back and forth across the pin in the little slot on the bottom.

Default Mickey

Nice Buttons. I've always liked that Marvel Marching Society. I've collected the 30's era Mickey's for a long time and while I sold most of my non-sports buttons, I'm glad I kept these. It's been a while since I've been able to add a sponsor that I don't have so any help would be appreciated!!
