This Victorian hat pin is in good condition. The top might have been enameled at one time so there is loss to that. I'm unsure if the is sterling or not. The head of the pin has an unusual shape where the upper portion has a floral motif on each side and the lower portion has an acanthus design. The head is 5/8" tall to the pin portion and is 3/8" wide at its widest and 1/4" deep. I have left the needle portion the way I acquired it with some oxidation to the brass as shown.
