This is an old Long Lines telephone pin. It is somewhat of a common pin that was issued by the Long Lines Department of the Bell System. However, it is much harder to find a 40 year pin. This pin has 8 stars designating 40 years of service to the company. I have a couple of these pins but they are hard to find. In fact, I am not sure if I have ever seen a 45 year pin or 50 year pin from Long Lines Bell System. If you have one, please let me know. In general, the 50 year service pins from any company are very difficult to find up for sale...
My latest acquisition - a 45 year Long Lines pin (9 stars). No stone left unturned to find this pin (charm). Folks, this one was hard to find - it took me 5 years of searching and asking around.
Now I need to find the 50 year Long Lines pin! Enjoy!
