Circa 1899 Comfort Soap Pinback Alfred E. Neuman Newman:
2" diameter celluloid pinback. One of the rarest and most sought after pinbacks in the hobby. No minimum or reserve on any of my listings. Vibrant colors, probably made by Whitehead Hoag Co. No defects whatsoever, save for the minor corrosion to back. If you do research on this pinback on the internet, the image you will see is ofthat very pinback which I purchased two years ago. I am selling most of my collection because my health is very bad and my son does not have the collecting bug. Please see my other listings by clicking on the "see other items" link above. The other pinbacks shown in the listings are in separate sales also listed this week. Guaranteed Original. Alfred E. Neuman's depictionhere is very early. Not sure of the story of exactly how it morphed intoAlfred as he exists now, but this is definitely the kid who inspired it all.Also, note that I have another similar depiction of himas the "Candy Kid" on anotherpinback, also very early.
