1974 KISS LP Button
BADGE 1974 or 1976
This enamel badge has a lot of confusion regarding its origins. Supposedly this promo button was given out a 1974 gigs. Although conflicting stories place these at around the time of the DESTROYER tour with a few photos of fans outside the 1976 Anaheim gig seen wearing them. Could it have been used as a VIP pass before the Japan 77 shows where they started reappearing? ★★★★★

1974 KISS Pin
BUTTON 1976
Possibly sold at the shows during the DESTROYER (‘The Spirit Of '76') tour, and/or in stores?. - Measures around 3 inches - The colours used are identical to the logo on the U.S. Tour '76' /Bicentennial poster. EverythingKISS UK reporter Paul Scarborough says: ''Check out the 'AUGDIN MGT' typo..... and 'BOUTWELL ENT INC' indicate that this is a pretty early piece of officially-sanctioned merchandise. I've never seen this 'pin on any order forms …not surprising with that error I guess.'' ★★★★★

1977 KISS Patch
BUTTON 1977
Some doubts as to the authenticity of this badge, but this carries the same lips design as the 1977 ad for the single Then She Kissed Me released in the UK. Paul says: ''I've heard this cited as the English 'promo' version of the rare enamel KISS Lips pin. An urban KISS collector's myth if you ask me, but I've seen it being passed on as ultra rare and priced - shall we say, 'accordingly.' Hmmmmm.'' ★★★★★

‘HOT SHOTS’ BUTTONS 1976-77, PINNING COMPANY/IDEA FACTORY/HOTLINE
Seven 3-inch button designs, featuring one for each band member, a KISS Army logo, KISS logo and a DESTROYER era pose. The latter with the shot flipped, a later revised version of that pin was released with the pic around the right way. Worth more on the backing cards. The four solo shot pins were also released on red carded backing called “MY HERO” instead of “HOT SHOTS” and from a different company called Idea Factory. The reverse star image, KISS logo and KISS Army logo were also marked as being released in 1976, and as well also appearing on a backing card called “STARLINE SERIES” from The Pinning Company, making it three companies that released the same badges!!! Additionally there was a 6 inch version of the star background group shot!!! ★★★★★
