In very good condition; the pin is a bit bent.

Century 21 - 1962 Seattle World's Fair Pin

Century 21 - 1962 Seattle World's Fair Pin in Original Packaging

The World's Fair took place in Seattle, Washington in 1962, was named "Century 21," and the theme was the future.

This swell "21" logo tie tack or lapel pin was sold at the fair. Still in its original packaging, just as the day some lucky Seattleite brought it home.

Made by the Leavens Manufacturing Co., Inc. in Attleboro, Massachusetts. Measures 1/4" inch wide by 3/8" tall.

Click on photo at left to see packaging. The tie tack for sale has never been out of the package - the one we photographed is a loose one we also have on offer.

We have several; a couple of these have cellophane that's unfolded or has a little tear. The packaging has yellowed a bit in the last 46 years. I'll send you the best I have. Else in excellent, unused condition. The pin itself is mint.

These turn up occasionally but, even living here in the Seattle area, I've never seen one in the original packaging before.

We stumbled into a lucky cache, and have 5 of these available, at $9 each.
(See below for unpackaged pins.)
