Product Description

Borden Milk Company 1942 'Every Penny Counts - Buy Defense Bonds' World War 2 Milk Cap. This is a WWII era milk cap from 1942. The milk cap was made and distributed by the Borden Milk Company which was based out of Columbus, Ohio. The pin has a graphic with the same cow as the Elmer's glue mascot/logo (Elmer's glue, Cracker Jacks, and many other companies are part of the Borden Corporation). The pin reads "Every Penny Counts - BUY DEFENSE BONDS" in a redish orange print on top of a graphic of a coin purse. The Elmer's glue cow is leaning over the top of the coin purse wagging his tail which has a bow on it. At the bottom of the milk cap it says in small black print "Corp. '42 Borden Co." and in slightly bigger print below "MILK". This is a classic milk cap from the USA homefront effort to sell defense bonds & raise money for the war. The milk cap is still in perfect condition, but there is a staple in it. Every copy of this milk cap I have has the staple in the same spot, just above the word milk. Milk cap is approximately 1 1/2" in diameter.
