I picked this very small (1 1/8") pin up today The letters, in order on the pin are Eta Phi Gamma. The pin is marked Sterling, and I can find no other marks on it. I have not been able to find any mention of that organization. Am I possibly reading it in the wrong order? (it's all Greek to me :-)) Do any of the CW experts have any ideas? Thanks for looking!

    Must have been wonderful in its pursuit to be excellent in all areas. The pin is beautiful and must have been worn with pride.

    Phil, I don't know what the symbols mean. I imagine the owl means academics, but what do the rest of them mean?

    The crest seems to be someones own design. The owl is usually associated with learning. I love it when they are on a bookcase.
