    Recently purchased a collection of pins and cufflinks from an estate sale. I am having trouble finding out any information on most of them. Items include NBC Peacock cufflinks, a hummer shaped challenge coin, law enforcement pins... I searched the internet for this pin as well as others and found nothing. The pin is one and a half inch by one and a half inch. The back is smooth and plain except for the word Sterling printed on the bottom.

    Unsolved Mystery

    Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.

      Ok ... Am i the only one who thought jimmy buffet ?
    3. RussTenale RussTenale, 8 years ago
      Cool ... Thanks. I just connected the keywords ... I am not a "parrothead" (buffet fan) so i have no further knowledge or insight ...

      Yeah, me too ... Margaritaville, Parrot, Conch .... All connects, even if i am not a fan. I had to re-read the post before I commented because I was sure the connection would be obvious, but that's cool ... Maybe it's a generation thing ... I told a young lady the reason Royal purple is called "royal" and she said "what a bunch of useless information " LOL

      My thanks to everyone who responded, I went to the Margaritaville site but it was not available for sale, couldn't find it on Ebay or anywhere else. A special thanks to Riply206 for going the extra mile, please let me know if you receive any information.

      I found a post online from a lady who wanted to buy pins that a couple of the Margaritaville employees at their pensacola hotel were wearing. An employee responded that those pins were only given to employees that reached certain accomplishments. Furthermore, they were not for sale and the policy states that any employee who gives away a pin or sell one is subject to termination. So, I believe I found my answer and I can certainly see why I could not find any like it for sale. Thanks to everyone who commented.
