Remarkable collection of 40 celluloid pin back buttons advertising High Admiral Cigarettes, each with a different saying.  Used as a premium, these small (7/8" wide) buttons each contain a humorous or topical (for the time) saying, such as "Here's your hat, what's your hurry," "I let No Grass Grow Under Me," or "It will all come out in the wash."  The reverse advertises High Admiral Cigarettes, along with the button manufacturer Whitehead & Hoag (the inventor of "celluloid").  The text on the buttons are printed in a variety of colors and typefaces, all connected by the "High Admiral Cigarettes" brand printed underneath each saying.  

An extremely curious and interesting grouping of pinback buttons.
