I'm still digging through the "finds" from a Danbury, CT clean-out. Inside an old suitcase was a small flat of jewelry items. Mostly bits and pieces and all moldy and mildly corroded. Several simple pieces were mens monogramed items, but a couple, or at least one was military - and the other was just patriotic, but finely detailed and tiny. Take a look.
The back is affixed permanently. I am not aware of the name for this. It is not clutch-back or pin back. Any ideas? The age of both of these items is likely early 20th century, but my research ends there.
I almost missed this flag pin in the box. It is tiny. There are 8 stars and no other markings that I can see without an electron microscope.
