Early plastic FINAL REDUCTION SALE football charm novelty pin that reads Fort Scott, JU.CO
JUCO Football is a shorthand way of referring to football played at the junior college level. Junior colleges, frequently also referred to as community colleges, are two-year institutions where a student-athlete can earn an Associate's Degree before transferring to a four-year university. So this pin may be have been referring to the community college in Fort Scott, CO, or not, since it is a 1920s-30s Dime Store item. Great collectors piece for those that love early plastic jewelry as well as football.
It's remarkable that the hollow football helmet has survived. It measures 7/8 of an inch, and the field shoes are 7/8 of an inch. They hang from fancy etched gold plate chains that dangle from the red college pendant. Total length is 2.74 inches.
