We found this old button in a warehouse in Germany, of all places, and were so taken by it, that we decided we had to find someone to duplicate it for us to sell. So we had our friends at Wagner, the only tin-toy maker left in Germany, to replicate it for us. We made a limited run of 1000 button clips to sell as a celebratory gag. The original dates from the 1940’s, and was made in Chicago by the Evans Novelty Co., and shows Uncle Sam hanging Adolf Hitler from a tree. The gag with this button is, when you pull the red rope, you hang Adolf, and when you let go, Adolf disappears. Lots of fun! A great bit of WWII propaganda. You should buy a bunch, give ‘em to your buddies for Christmas, it’ll make everybody grin. Made of lithographed tinplate and measures about 2” Ø with a pocket clip and red rope.
