I am a CT resident so this caught my eye. It is a Sterling Fob/Pendant from the CT State Trade School, Putnam, CT. It has a few initials on the back with the hallmark Sterling. It is 1 1/4" long and 1/2" wide and weighs 3.2 grams.
It has history and would be a token of remembrance for a family whose patriarch was a graduate of this school. In this economy we are beginning to once again look at apprentice and trade professions as valuable parts.
