This item features a shield with very nice and ornate embellishments throughout. There is a field of white enamel on the edges, P.O.S. of A. in blue enamel on a banner at the top, a red enameled star atop a pedestal, with a 3D head of a patriot affixed. The back has very fine dotting and chasing.
This weighs in at 4.9 grams and stands 1 3/16" (30.8mm) tall from the bottom to the top of the stationary bale. This would be great on a charm bracelet, as a watch FOB, or a pendant on a necklace.
I believe this to be rolled gold or gold filled. This item is in excellent, original condition.
