Trading floor pins and buttons

You'll need to click on the photo to enlarge it and read the pins better but I'm grateful for Dean Geyer for sending in the photo of what is one of the greatest if not the greatest collection of trading pins from the Chicago trading floors. The blog in the past has a few pictures of ones that I've collected but Dean's collection is much more comprehensive of the time he spent on the trading floor.  These pins were handed out at the entrance to the trading floor to commemorate contract launches, VIP visitors, milestones, etc... and as most were thrown away pretty quickly, it's rare to see such a collection and it's very nice of Dean to share his collection.  It's a nice walk down memory lane to recall when the buttons were handed out (even though most of his were before my time)!
