    Hey guys i recently purchased this Vichy Shield stick pin which is pretty small, there is writing on the back but it is too small to photograph. But i want to know if it is genuine and why it may have been worn, e.g. was it worn to show support?
    Thanks, Glen.

    Looks awfully brand new to be 70 years old...

    Hi William, you are correct that the condition is extremely good however originality can not completely lie on this
    Thanks, Glen.

    I think it may be ok but need a back pic please.

    Hey Eric, have you seen one before, also do you know why it would have been worn. I will try and get some pics tomorrow but i am pretty sure that the writing on the back is too small to see let alone photograph but i will try and write down what it says
    Thanks, Glen.

    If it looks like this one you are ok, glad you said it had writing on the back. I have seen some fakes with blank back and poor pin attachment. I say congrats from what I see.
    My understanding it is a support pin.
    These are not my pins but from saved pics data base.

    So Eric, I have brought two Vichy items recently at very low prices, is there a particular website that you know of that deals in related items so i can get an idea of value please and also for future purchases and reference material?
    Thanks, Glen.
