Default A Coin Collector who is somewhat Lost

Hello all,

I am Bill Snyder, I live in the United States, and I collect the mis-struck coins of the UK.

I am here at your Forum because I find myself with a sterling pin which I suspect many of you can help me identify.


(The body is about 1 inch in diameter).


Many thanks,
bill

Hello Bill, and Welcome to the Forum.
Your badge/brooch doesn't appear to be military related but is rather a Scottish souvenir type brooch. Very nice.
Cheers, Tinto

Default Identifying a Pin

Many thanks, Tinto!

And, Longshanks, I'm a mis-placed northern living in central Tennessee. (Cookeville, TN, to be exact).


Bill

Hi Bill. Cool, I understand theres a big show down your way I believe. I had an email from an ebay dealer, he called it the "Show Of Show's" or something like that. Wish I was closer, I'd come down.

Cheers,

Simon.
