From the last decade of the 1800s, this collection of four celluloid pins shows highly detailed views of the state seals of Delaware, South Carolina, Montana and California. Rare and interesting, each of these give-aways is marked on the reverse by the company of manufacture:
Whitehead & Hoag Co. - Newark, N.J.,
and dated : Pat. July 21, 1896, Pat July 17, 1894, Pat. April 14, 1896.
They are in Good Condition overall, showing a slight bit of yellowing and discoloration from age, also some minor surface scuffs. The Montana pin has a couple of scratches on it’s face. The paper backs are still easy to read, and the metal edges on the backs show minor oxidation.
