Rob,
I believe the attachments to pinbacks were done to make them more attractive to kids, especially boys. I remember vendors at ballparks with boards filled with pins with attachments. I admit as a 10 year old boy, a pin with a knife attached was pretty neat. Now of course this would never be allowed. Of course when I went to high school we had a rifle club where the boys brought their firearms to school. I don't know about the rest of you, but part of the reason I collect is to remember the good old days. They are sadly gone forever.
