Two Vari-Vue (“flicker”) pins from the 50’s:  a dude blowin’ sax and two teens jitterbugging by the jukebox.  The back and forth “action” on them is pretty cool and you’ve gotta admire the artistry and technology that went into something so cheap.

    I still go nuts for these Vari-Vues. I used to collect them as a kid, especially those having to do with music and dance, but never saw either of these two. I still have a bunch of them though most of mine either came on rings or the backs of mirrors. I have a few wallets that have them on too.

    How big are these?
