    Default Remember Pearl harbor Pin- Sterling Silver

    Here's an odd little bit not often seen that I thought I'd post here for the heck of it. You find these little patriotic pins every now and then, but almost always in painted plastic or pot metal. They were cheap and were meant to be, just to get the word out there and fire up the patriotism. This pin, however, is abit different-it is made of Sterling silver. It only measures about an inch and a quarter, but it is great condition and I suspect that it likely was never sold and worn. Why buy it for 2 or 3 dollars when you can have a cheap version in red white and blue paint for 25 cents, hey? Whatever the reason, it kept it preserved in minty shape and here it is. An interesting bit of US WWII Home Front memorabilia. (It says "STER 5L" on the back, in case you were wondering-I had to use a Bausch and Lomb loupe to read it!)

    Absolutely love these home front pins. I have seen the plastic ones like you said, but have not come across a sterling piece. Nice find.
