Hi - I recently found this pin - I know nothing about it but I just feel like it's old. Any idea as to when this could have been made?
I think the covering is glass.

Mystery Solved

    That's a modern pin-back, so my guess would be about 20-25 years old? It looks like it was handcrafted, it might be a vintage Christmas card that was cut up and decoupaged, and the edge painted in gold. It looks to me like it was done over an eyeglass lens, it's the right shape.
    Again, it's hard to tell from your photo, but it looks like it might be hot glue that was used to adhere the pinback. That's pretty modern- the past 30 years or so.
