This is a pin that has been a mystery to me for years.
Yesterday I discovered a similar one at a local antique store with a price tag of $250.
I was delighted not by the price but by the fact that I might finally learn more about my piece. I love doing detective work.
It is the Nancy Drew in me.
My pin has a patent pending mark along with a very faint signature.
There is also some type of mark in the center.
I am going to visit a jeweler soon to see if I can borrow a loop.
Until then...anyone have any ideas?
