His mouth is open. His body is poised to strike. And his teeth are aiming to take a bite. Good thing this creeping reptilian is made of sterling silver so the only damage he can do is force you to chat with people when they comment on him.
This vintage alligator pin is well made, showing off that textured armor-like gator back and muscular tail. Those powerful jaws make it obvious that this is an envoy from the distant past...more than 150 million years old, scientists say.
This one is not quite that old...more like a relic from (what now seems like) the 'prehistoric' 1950s. The gator pin measures 3 1/8 inches long by 2 inches wide. He weighs 23.3 grams. There's a secure rollover clasp on the back. Marked STERLING. We've left the original patina as is (unpolished) as some collectors prefer that. Excellent condition.
