    Another rare find. I have been very lucky lately!

    Here is a Diamond State Telephone Co. pin. This is one of the hardest pins to find from the old Bell System (especially marked 14K). D.S.T.Co. was a subsidiary of Bell Telephone Co. of Pennsylvania and was located in the state of Delaware. I missed a chance for a Lehigh Telephone pin earlier this year and it is even more rare. Maybe next time!

      Thank you mrmajestic1! I waited a long time for this pin. It was a small telco and therefore not many employees.

      Another great find, I haven't seen this pin before.

      Thank you ttomtucker! Well, I am not sure how big Delaware is as a State but I was told there were maybe only 4 exchanges total for D.S.T.Co. - A very small company. For some reason, the company issued charms more than pins. I have a gold charm and 3 silver charms from this company but this is the first pin I have owned from them and only the second one I have ever seen. Thanks again for your comments!
