Default Tie pin.

1930s sterling silver tie pin, mounted with a silver enamel and marcasite badge. Rhodium plated jewellery began in 1932 and its use was banned during the war years as a strategic metal.

Ron,

Thanks for that, have not seen many boxed examples but suppose quality items would always have had one.
