    I AM NOT SURE THE ORIGIN OR MEANING OF THIS RATHER LARGE 3 INCH DIAMETER BADGE/PIN

    I AM ASSUMING IT IS FROM A FRATERNAL OR ACADEMIC ORGANIZATION. BUT WHILE THE SAYING IS COMMON AND ATTRIBUTED TO VARIOUS HISTORICAL FIGURES - I CAN NOT DETERMINE ITS ORIGIN.

    IF YOU HAVE EVER SEEN ONE LIKE THIS OR KNOW OF ITS ORIGIN WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.

    THANKS SO MUCH FOR LOOKING !! GREATLY APPRECIATED

    GERRY

      DizzyDave - Thanks so much - you are dead on - this pin came from the estate of a prominent San Franciscan woman involved in charitable work. The match with the Lux Foundation is perfect.

      Again Thanks so much - and we are glad that you share this century with us. All of us collectors of antique and vintage stuff share a common bond.
