My Collection

At a flea market I discovered a button that first only interested me because of its size and its making. A button of a kind that could not be found in Germany, to pin on or to put somewhere, made and sold for the inauguration day of the then 35th President John F. Kennedy. This was “my first piece”, purchased for a dollar, awakening my passion for collecting generally – and the interest in that charismatic president in general – and it made me engage in that topic for decades.
Other pieces about John F. Kennedy followed, partly also souvenirs from my father he had bought on his business trips, and so the collection and the interest grew. This fascination is still inspiring me today after more than 36 years. John F. Kennedy and his actions had been unique in his time. With my collection and its wide range I want to show this uniqueness.
Have fun and enjoy my digital pages!
