    Description

    Mad Scatter/Lapel Pin (EC, 1957). Mad Magazine began offering five styles of jewelry manufactured by Astrahan of New York in June 1957, priced at $2 each or $3 for a pair of cuff links. Mad discontinued selling them by early 1958. Only 1,000 to 2,000 pieces were sold, according to the publisher, and all are excessively rare today with well under 100 pieces surviving. The lapel/scatter pins were described by MAD as follows: "Your good suit will look better with a 'What... Me Worry?' Kid lapel pin. It will look best with a lapel, but the pin will help. Or give it to your girl as a scatter pin. If you have no girl, scatter a few. You'll pin one!" Excellent condition. From the Grant Geissman collection.
