King Turkey Day pins from 1941 to 1990 are shown on display Thursday at the Nobles County Historical Society. Pins were introduced two years after the first KTD as an attempt to raise funds. Harold Benson donated pins up to 1973; the rest were donated by the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce. Special pins were created for 1973, when Cuero, Texas got involved with the annual Great Gobbler Gallop and Paycheck began its rivalry with Ruby Begonia. (Tim Middagh/Daily Globe)
