This is a pin I have owned for a long time. I have almost an entire set of these pins. Many of them have different company names engraved but the pins look the same.

Although - after all this time, I am still missing a few pins to complete the full set. They are Lexington Telephone, Southern Telephone and Worthington Telephone. Please somebody let me know if they have any of these pins as mentioned up for sale or for trade. Enjoy - and thank you to all!


After much searching, I finally found a Lee Telephone pin. This telephone company was located in Virginia. Check out my other photo of a Lee Telephone pin from the decade earlier (this is in my collection too as shown here on Collector's Weekly). It was a green and white enamel pin. Enjoy! P.S. Still looking for Southern Telephone among other pins which were under the Central Telephone holdings.


Two more photos added. Middle States Telephone and La Crosse Telephone Corporation. I have many more but I am currently searching for a Worthington Telephone (Minnesota). Thanks.

    Thank you ttomtucker. These pins are harder to find than it seems. One would think in a down economy, that people would be selling this kind of stuff like crazy for extra cash. Not true. Each passing year, I find less and less telephone pins up for sale...
