This hard to find pin is hand painted under bevelled glass. The pin is 1 inch wide and over an inch tall. It depicts the pine log cabin that was the symbol of Harrison’s campaign of 1840, which was economic reform required as a result of a protracted depression known as the “Panic of 1837.” I have never in my research seen another reform pin like this one. I believe it to be very rare. There are some condition issues with this piece, there is a chip in the glass on the top right, resulting in the flag being somewhat washed away. The back has replacement pin catches. The frame is brass and ornate.C. 1840.
