    Still in its little plastic clip-top box, this is a gold (plated?) and blue enamel lapel pin. Somebody got awarded [?] this after 25 yrs [!!] of loyal service/labor for the Company. [gee THANKS guys, I guess...?] Not seen here, there is a little bit of masking tape on the bottom of the box with a handwritten surname and maybe a date, but I can't make all that out now.

    ----------------------EDIT a little while later-----------------------

    I got to thinking, and a gold *plated* pin would be pretty chintzy indeed for 25yrs...so I unclipped the pin from its cardboard velour and looked on its back for the first time. Whaddayaknow -- it looks to be stamped "_6B 10K". I don't know what the first part of that means, but the last part is sorta self-explanatory, isn't it...?? ;-) :-) :-) New pic added shows the back inscription, does anybody recognize what that maker's mark translates to?

      U.S. Steel revolutionized the American industrial revolution of the early 1900s.
      Andrew Carnegie sold his steel operation to J.P. Morgan for roughly 300M. Morgan then formed U.S. Steel.
      Nice Pin And I Would Say In Gold As Well.

      WHOOPS -- you're quite correct Cisum -- I looked further and the pin *is* marked as 10K gold on its back. THANK YOU, also to vetraio50, Watchsearcher, and fortapache for your quick <love it> button taps!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
