He's either screaming, singing, or surprised to see you. We're not sure what his open mouth expression is conveying but we do know that he's a fascinating figural pin made by Selro.
The New York City company made distinctive costume jewelry in the 1950s/60s that included colorful molded plastic faces of various ethnicities and devils. Their jewelry was unique, offbeat and in this case, downright oddball.
The man has a green Lucite body, brushed gold-tone arms and legs and he's wearing a hat. He measures 1 1/8 inches across by 2 1/2 inches high. The back has a secure rollover clasp. It's marked SELRO CORP. Slight scuffs to the Lucite but the metal is bright with no wear and overall condition is excellent. A rare Selro pin.
