It took one look and two seconds for nephew Joe to identify this car pin. "It's a 1940s Citroen." Guys just know these things.
This vintage pin is made of solid sterling silver. It's marked with the French Minerva head silver mark and has also been acid tested for sterling.
The pin measures 1 inch across by 3/4 inch high. It weighs 9.4 grams. It has the old wide ~C~ clasp on the back.
The Citroën Traction Avant car was made by the French manufacturer Citroën from 1934 to 1957. This pin is circa 1940s, with original unpolished patina. This pin may have been a promotional item you got when purchasing the car. (Photo of the car is just for reference and not included.)
