These are 2 wonderful rare celluloid pinbacks from the 1930's. They are both original and in very nice condition with attached pins. They measure approx. 1 1/4" in diameter. They were distributed by the Evening Ledger Newspaper that featured these characters in their Comic Strips. One is WIMPY saying, " I WOULD GLADLY PAY YOU TUESDAY " and the other is SMITTY saying, " YEABO ". Great graphics! Nice collectible pins!!
