    Hello to all my knowledgeable friends. Another find only I don't know much about it. I have tested it and its 14 KT. gold and maybe sliver or white gold (the figurine). Comes from Waterhead & Hoag Newark N.J inscribed on the back. On the bottom of the back there are two acorn trademarks and Inside one is an "I" and the other a "U".???
    There is a website I found, but it wasn't helpful. This company made all sorts of pins, political, club, occasion you name it, but I don't see this one. Looks Cherub like, stirring a teacup of steaming liquid. Dark Navy colored background. Quite cute. Any ideas? Always love the feedback.
    Appreciate your help. Thanks Blingiton1948

      Thank you all for your comments: A gentleman (Ted) from Whitehead & Hoag emailed me to say this:W&H is the name of the maker in Newark NJ. The acorn is a labor union mark. The logo on the front is for Wilber's Cocoa. Probably circa 1900. These were usually brass and if so around $40-50. But if really 18K more like $100-150. Ted - I was so pleased to hear this. Wilburs Chocolate located in Lititz, Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1865 by Henry Oscar Wilbur and Samuel Croft.[1] Thanks again..blingiton1948
