Nielsio's black and gold V. I'd pay good money for one and I'd wear it out fast.

Maybe a kickstarter project...

What I could do for you with the Cafepress store, in 5 minutes:

I'll try later for something better.

That pinpros site looks good. Only problem is I'd have to buy a hundred and each person needs to be mailed separately afterwards.

I notice Mises.org has a lapel pin for $6.00 .

 

EDIT:

If they are under 20 gram, then it only costs 95 eurocents to mail them anywhere from the Netherlands. If 20 to 50 grams, it's double that.

I can vouch for the Mises pin for what it's worth. They're great conversation pieces and look great with any suit.

Count me in for two or three pins if anyone intends to make a Voluntaryist lapel pin.

Haha. Look at CafePress's shop for voluntaryist T-shirts:

http://www.cafepress.com/vforvoluntarystore

Some of the shirts have the proud red stamp "Made in the US". I found it very ironic that it would be a marketing strategy used for Misesians :P

 

As to the Mises pin, I'd love to use it, but I do not want to appear a dogmatic follower, because I haven't read very much Mises and would not be able to defend all his views.

"As to the Mises pin, I'd love to use it, but I do not want to appear a dogmatic follower, because I haven't read very much Mises and would not be able to defend all his views."

I wear the Mises pin even though I also probably couldn't defend Mises himself. I mainly wear it as a way of saying, hey, there's a good alternative to all the Keynesian nonsense we get fed every day so go check out the Mises Institute. Also as a promotion of libertarian ideas in general.

You could custom make one on a place like Zazzle, I think.

@Wheylous

lol, true, true. I meant more that I couldn't defend Mises and the other Austrians in nearly as much detail as a lot of you guys. But the AE I have learned certainly makes more sense to me than the mainstream I grew up with.
