Original ‘60s pin badge printing the slogan “Banana Power”.

Lettering in black on a yellow and black ground. 3cm. diameter.

The great banana-smoking hoax of Spring 1967 in America was originally designed to raise questions about the ethics of making psychoactive drugs illegal and prosecuting those who took them, but the joke was lost somewhere along the line and many took to actually smoking banana peel in the belief that they would get high, hence this badge's (presumed) tongue in cheek slogan.

Rust spots to verso, o/w Fine.
