Title VR lapel pin in pinchbeck
Nationality British
Period c 1885+
Price £25.00

This could be a commemorative piece for any of the late Victorian Jubilee celebrations. Alternatively, it is just possibly an ordinary patriotic piece with no particular date. Her long reign spanned from 1837-1901, but my guess is that this was definitely made towards the latter end of it.

The height of the piece is just under 2.5cm. It is a die-struck item and the pin would appear to be fixed with silver solder. Generally, its condition is pretty good for its age. It may have had an electro-gilt finish, which is more visible on the reverse than on the front.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

The bayonet arrived safely this morning, it's excellent and exactly what I've been looking for, I'm very pleased with it! ... I've bookmarked your site and will keep a regular check to see what you have.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
