    Description

    Kellogg's Pep Pin Set (Kellogg's, 1945-47). A group of 88 different Pep pinback buttons. Kellogg's introduced small lithographed tin pinback buttons as premiums offered in boxes of Pep Cereal in 1943, beginning with military insignia sets. In 1945, they began several series of Comic Character buttons. Each set consisted of 18 buttons, for a total of five sets. Common with each set was the Superman button; all other buttons featured different comic strip characters, like Little Orphan Annie, Felix the Cat, the Phantom, and a few truly odd supporting characters like Uncle Bim (from The Gumps) and Denny Dimwit (from Winnie Winkle). Only one Superman pin is included in this group. Two tokens and a "Sheriff's Gun" badge are also included. The overall condition for the buttons is VF to NM. Hake's Pop Culture Memorabilia Price Guide lists a complete 86 button set (with only one Superman) with a NM value of $2,000. From the Mel Dybdahl Collection.
