    Hello, I am trying to date this pin. I was hoping someone could help me identify this pins approximate production date. I have not been able to find another one like it. This pin has the "Meatball" logo and a very good intact permabase. I have seen others similar but not with the "Tournament" stamping. Also there is a stamping between the red stripes...the stamping reads "A26388" it is flanked on both sides by an upside down triangle with amf in a circle. I know nothing of the history of this pin other than it was in the attic of a farmhouse in northern, NH. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      "Neat" was MY first thought!! I do a lot of folk art and although I had some initial ideas as to what I could transform this into, I thought best to investigate and not ruin an item that a true collector might be interested in. My art could possibly "ruin" a unique piece.

      I would guess 50-60's for a date. I'm not 100% sure but from ads I've seen with AMF's 82-30 automatic pinspotter from that time frame the pins in those pics had the same "meatball" logo. Def an older pin. Very nice pin.
