1988. This pin is of the Octopus with whacked out expression and arms pointing in all directions. This is the only depiction of this rare Avery character we've seen. 1" high.
Not directly distributed in the U.S.. Mint. Original owner and other loose pins never used (just can't find bags). These pins were manufactured in France where some of the biggest Avery fans resided/reside!. Made by Demons & Merveilles and each pin is marked and dated. High quality heavy metal and Cloisonne with great detail. Backs have tie tack like closure so it can easily be used as a tie pin as well.
If you like Avery, do not hesitate, we believe you wont see these again and you wont be sorry.
