This pin is a little treasure that commemorates the Diamond Jubilee, 60 years on the throne of England, of Queen Victoria.She came to the throne in 1837 and this pin is hallmarked Birmingham 1896, manufactured in preparation for the grand celebration throughout the British Empire.The hallmarks indicate that the piece is sterling.There is a "c" clasp in good condition. On the front are initials "V R" for Victoria Regina" and the dates 1837 and 1897 over hearts symbolizing the love that her subjects had for this amazing Queen.This pin is in excellent condition, probably purchased for the event and then cherished for many years. I purchased the pin at an antiques fair in England about 20 years ago and have had it in my private collection.
