    Because of the shape of the pin, someone gave it this name.

    And also, what details on the cross makes this a Paul Meybauer? Is it an early one or late issue?

    Thank you

    As Ralph says the shape of the pin is like Marilyn's sexy form and it is unique to Meybauer

    Nick gave it this name!

    On another note this is not a 'Marilyn Monroe pin', but the later 'coke bottle pin' IMO?

    Nick is correct, my mistake!
    Here are my examples of both pins ;

    You can clearly see the Marilyn Monroe shaped one v. the Coke bottle

    Okay, I see the difference now! So this is a later issue Maybauer? Do you perhaps know when this version first saw issue?
