Michael, a nice and original stick pin. I've always liked the looks of these-the details are so sharp and all the markings on the backsides of them are fascinating. Unfortunately, as said above, there is no way to identify the numbers on them to any particular owner-the lists just aren't there-if they ever were. These little pins have been Horrendously faked and copied for many years and in enormous quantities and good detail as well, so it's definitely nice to see one with all the right bells and whistles on it! Like you've noted, they are not Cheap-in fact, I've seen some priced at absurd prices of late, so you've got a decent piece for your collection! Well done!

LoL!!! So true. While this was expensive, it was a good buy compared to what I see on dealer sites so was quite happy.
Thanks William. Wasn't looking for one. Was just in my dealers inventory and it caught my eye. In my research I too saw some really poor fakes.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
