"The purest form in which tobacco can be smoked"

Sweet Caps were one of the most popular brands of cigarette produced by the American Tobacco Company


Celluloid Buttonthis refers to a pinback button.  There are various methods for making a celluloid pinback button, but the most common method for construction is as follows: an image was printed on paper, celluloid was placed onto the paper, then the combination of the paper/celluloid was secured (wrapped) onto a metal disk.  The paper/celluloid application was held in place on the metal disk by wrapping it around the curl of the metal disk, then stabilized by a metal rim (or collet) that was pressed onto the back of the pin.  Celluloid has not been used in the manufacture of pinback buttons for decades, now replaced by acetate.

Pinback – this term is used to describe any button that has a pin on the back used to attach the item to one’s clothing.  This includes all types of buttons; lithos, celluloid, metal, etc.  In general, most pinbacks were produced from 1896 forward.
