Limited Edition, numbered Gonzo lapel pin. Limit one per customer (two per household) please. 

This lapel pin was modeled after the original pin Hunter S. Thompson wore to his book signing at Taschen in Los Angeles. After the first night, he wore it regularly on his hat, coats, and as his lapel pin. Two others were made for that occasion for his guests, Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro. 

After he died, Johnny Depp asked Hunter S. Thompson’s wife if he could wear it to the Oscars. She was happy to send it to him to honor Hunter’s work in this way, & has become a gesture of their friendship. And also the sense of community & confidence that was the point of the original lapel pin.
