    Hello - hoping someone can help me identify these 4 pins. My mother and I found them while we were cleaning out my grandmother’s jewelry box. She has dementia and doesn’t remember what they are from. Someone mentioned that they looked military, so thought this would be a good place to start!

    There are four pins, one with one star, one with two stars, one with three stars, and one with four stars. Any ideas?

      Seems to be a number of them on the internet for sale and nobody else knows what they are for/from either.

      Someone made a comment about it being a factory award. I now believe it’s a SWIFT AND COMPANY service pin, with the stars being an indication of length of service, maybe one star for 5 or 10 years. My father worked for Swift’s for many years.
