Description
Campaign collar tag supporting John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson during the 1960 election. "KENNEDY and JOHNSON" is printed in blue on a white background. The red and blue fields at the top and bottom each have a white star. The smaller round tab has a union label and the words "Green Duck Co. Chicago." The tag is made of thin metal; the user would bend the tag so that the round tab would go inside a collar and the main label would show.
