Limited Edition, numbered Gonzo lapel pin. Limit one per customer (two per household) please. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to buy one without a certificate of authenticity. Thanks for your patience.
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. Johnny then wore it to the Oscars to honor Hunter's memory. Many people were touched by that act & has become a gesture of that friendship.
Three were made at the time, one for Hunter with a red ruby for the peyote button. The other two were made for Hunter's homies Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro.
