Buttons and Pinbacks
There were two major types of buttons. The older pinbacks were tin and had to utilize sci fi rockets for their graphics. Once Sputnik was launched, a lot of Sputnik themed pinbacks appeared. The second major type is the padded pinback that documented a specific flight event. The older ones sometimes had ribbons and sapce capsules hanging from them.
Note: A photo does not necessarily mean I have acquired the item.
I also collect commemorative flight pins, mission pins, space program pins, and some older tie-tack type of pins.
