C.1910 STERLING SILVER GOP/Grand Old Party/Republican Elephant Pin, Lapel Pin!
C.1910 STERLING SILVER GOP/Grand Old Party/Republican Elephant Pin, Lapel Pin
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1910 or so
ITEM: A silver figural pin of an elephant head. At the top are the initials GOP standing for GRAND OLD PARTY - the political affiliation? Republican of course! The face of the elephant has great definition and has a safety catch at the back to hold the pin in place.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. Taking a peek at other listings on the Net, it appears that at one time this pin might have had a gold overlay - but the look of the pin right now is PURE silver and nothing more. Great "front on" look as well as profile!
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: STERLING Pat Pend on the reverse.
SIZE: 7/8" x 11/18". As is the norm with very early pins, the pinstem sticks out a bit from the front of the piece.
WEIGHT: 1.8 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Awesome!
