Manufacturer: Freedom of Choice Campaign
Collectible old political pin, pinback or button with the slogan, "Freedom of Choice". Since no organization name appears on the button (there are no other words of any kind), we are not sure what political campaign or cause this was used to support, whether for abortion rights, religious freedom, school choice (relative to which one to attend), or political voting freedoms of some kind....but it definitely supports a core freedom of American life, to choose for ourselves. If you are familiar with what cause this supported, please let us know and we will add that to the description for others to see (with our thanks!).

Round & small in size, slightly larger than a quarter, measuring about 1 inch in diameter. The slogan appears twice on the topside in a circular fashion around a large center star that is also surrounded by smaller stars, all colored in patriotic red, white and blue. The reverse side has the traditional metal pinback closure which can easily be hooked and unhooked so the piece can be worn. We believe this to be a vintage political button but do not know the exact age. It came out of a home. We've provided four images of the front and back, taken with and without camera lighting since the lighting tended to provide a sharper focus but "blanded out" the pin features somewhat due to the white "hot spots" created.

The pin shows some signs of wear/age via some spotting/dirt on topside and spotting/dirt/rusting on the backside. Pinback appears to have a clear plastic cover over the topside metal which isn't noticeable in most places but becomes apparent when looking at the sides of this piece or looking from the backside. There are also some spots where this plastic cover is coming off the pin slightly or is torn with pieces/edges sticking up a bit. You need to look closely to see this, but you can see it if you go looking for it.

A nice addition for any political and/or patriotic pinback collection.
