Vintage 1 3/4" diameter pin made from the mid to late 1960s. Nice picture of black and white shaking hands. Unused stock found in storage at a distributorship in Washington D. C. Marked AAA Novelty around the rim. They have the famous slogan "We Shall Overcome" slogan on them which was the anthem for the Civil Rights Movement between 1954 and 1968. "We Shall Overcome" was first sung by striking tobacco workers in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1945 and was a very powerful uniting force. They do have slight spotting on them like the one in the picture. Not real common. This is the only one I have left.
