Hoonaloon ! 14 April 2015
Each week, we`re planning to highlight one item from our stock of badges, books, First Day Covers and Banknotes.
This week we have selected this American badge from a branch of Lions Clubs International ;
It relates to a particular Lions Club branch in Chicago, which seems to have a strongly Hispanic American membership.
The Branch is identified on the badge (Chicago District 1A), as is the year (1980). Around the edge of the badge are a variety of phrases representing different aspects of HIspanic American culture ( Pan American / Azteca / Jose Marti / Borinquen etc).
The badge is clean, intact and undamaged with only light wear.
Along with a selection of other items from our stock, this badge can be found at ;
