I found this brooch/pin on eBay early last year, I fell in love with it and I wear it often. I love it so much that it inspired my latest tattoo from Perth studio The Black Quill. I have found another on TSS - from Knightwhosayni (if you read this - where did you obtain yours? We seem to have a different fastening?). Would love to know more about it.

Not for sale or trade

I read this. ;)
Mine was coming from a French 1980s private collection, but the pin was most certainly produced in England I'd say. It's not unusual for such pins to have different fastenings - 1 butterfly clasp or 2, nappy pin, etc. Cast pewter pins is not my specialty - there are users here who are far more knowledgable than me about them, maybe they could give you their input (thinking notably about StereoDeth here).

Hey man, thanks for the reply and the info. It has been nice to research into a few little things, I have just started getting into pin collecting - it's been really fun to see discover how many amazing designs and collections are out there, I had no idea before coming to TSS.
Thanks for spotting the post. :)
