These are a few of my favorite pins I've gathered through the years from odd places.
The first two seem to be military related: the brass eagle, key, and sword insignia is for the Quartermaster Corps, and for some reason the emblem actually has two pins on the back even though the whole piece is less than an inch long. I believe the second is the Royal British navy insignia, though I'm not sure of the era or use for either.
The third is a TINY masonic emblem (less than 1/4" in size) - a crescent moon, star, and sword that I found pinned on a bowtie.
The fourth is a roller skating achievement pin for the Cub Scouts (not mine personally, though I've certainly earned put in my roller skating hours). The fifth is a mini PC, which I assume is a computer achievement award, though not sure where from...
The last is a a mini-texas pin showing a space shuttle and the astrodome, and proclaiming Houston as Space City in 1972. Not sure if this was connected to an event or what?
Any additional info on these pins is much appreciated!
