Customer Question

My mom found a Howdy Doody pin (broach) that she knows it is over 50 years old she was wondering if it had any value? There are no marking on the back and I can't seem to find one like it.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

My mom was in the audience of Howdy Doody once, with her cousins...she still talks about it!

You're right, this is unusual! Most of these two-part pins have a hanging Howdy Doody, where this one has Clarabell the Clown.

The value would be approximately $50.00.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
