I bought this pin in France in 1990. The back is stamped "Drago Paris Nice" and the address of 3 R. de Romainville. I found an obscure reference on the internet that showed that address dates to the mid-1950s, which would put this pin in the category of -- what, the Korean War, right? Does anyone know what the pin refers to or is otherwise about?

    If you use Google maps or Google earth you can zoom right in on the address and see the buildings. I wonder what information you used to find the 1950's date reference?

    Neat pin. I never much cared for such things until we inherited a bunch of it and I got elected to research it. Tools are easier but jewelry can be fun.

    Greetings. The information I used to find the date reference was the Gentlemen's Military Interest Club, link here:

    I like tools too. Jewelry is pretty, but sometimes very hard to identify. Thanks for the Google Maps pointer - that never occured to me. Duh.
