A Davy Crockett pinback button depicts one of several elements that are associated with this legendary man. Some do have the image of Parker on them, while others are more generic sketches. For example, one is a yellow button with the name ‘Davy Crockett’ printed at the top, a sketch of a kneeling Davy in the center, and the words ‘Indian Fighter’ at the bottom.
Any Davy Crockett pinback button would be fun to own – especially if you’re a Baby Boomer who grew up with Davy Crockett on your living room television console!
