Default New Microbus Concept Pin from 2001 Detroit NAIAS



I went to the Detroit Auto Show in 2001 on opening day (to the public) and talked to one of the VW reps for 3 or 4 hours about all things VW. He ended up giving me this pin, which he claimed was given out to members of the press the day before opening the NAIAS to the public.

The pin is enamel and has a small battery on the back and a little button. When the button is pressed, the headlamp on the Microbus Concept blinks yellow. The pin has the original battery in it and it still works.

I've looked on eBay various times and on the Internet, but I've never seen another one. I was just curious of its value and if it's a true "collector's item". I wish I had one of a New Beetle to match ;-)

No, sorry, I was just interested in the value. I've never seen another one.
