    This is one of my latest finds. It is marked with “STER” and a different word but I cannot read it; I think it start with a K. The pin is rather sturdy although it looks almost delicate. It somehow reminds of Scottish designs but I don’t know anything about it. I cleaned it only a bit. I think the patina gives it some character.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Nice collection! Do you wear them all together w/safety eraser or tape on the back? I hope so....

      When I looked at your pin, I immediately thought, Lithuania or Latvia, not Scotland, and after a short search found this: http://www.kalupesrotas.lv/16/par-mums

      Zowie, You are correct. One reads "STER" and I believe it is short for Sterling and the other word most likely means Kalupe. I cannot see all of the letters but with davyd286's information I am sure that's what it is:)

      Glad to know I'm not seeing things & eyes must be better then I thought & for letting me know. It's great to get so much help will have to try & put something new on site it's been awhile. Take care
