Another guard pin from Victorian or early 1900s, and again with the more complicated C clasp. The hook at the back is about 1/2 inch long to hold a chain or a watch. see my description on the my listing for the Fleur-de-Lis guard pin. This is a nice pin but PLEASE NOTE there is a slight "S" engraved on the shield - not too noticeable as it's not deeply engraved.
