Hi,
This is such a curious piece ~ pin/pendant.
When I bought it I didn't realize that the arrow on it's roulette-like wheel could spin,....but as I examined it I discovered that it did.
It was so puzzling that I had to have it.
There aren't any markings,
it looks gold plated
I thought it must be from some organization,...Fraternity or Sorority
maybe it was an award?
It must represent / mean something.
I'd appreciate any help identifying this beautiful and curious pin.
Thank You!

    Happy centenary! By the by, is the arrow broken? Is there something missing?
    I just tried googling: "arrow rotating" meaning. Interesting responses. What's skype?

    Hey Kev,
    I think it's complete, curious, isn't it?
    the arrow pierces the rotating 'roulette' disc.
    Thanks for the info on Pinchbeck,.......very interesting indeed!
