The object of the day: This JFK / Johnson election campaigne

This JFK / Johnson election campaigne badge represents the beginnings of a huge change in world affairs. The sixties began with a feeling of hope for a better post war future. The devastation of JFK, the end of "Camelot", the "curse of the Kennedy's". All this reshaped the subsequent administrations. This badge was bought in summer 2010 in a flea market in Arizona for $25. It has a detachable Democratic Donkey pin to be worn later on a lapel. It was made by Green Duck Co. Chicago.
