Hello, I'm hoping someone can tell me something about these hat pins and the company that made them. They are advertised as Best Dragon Hat Pins, manufactured mechanically hardened & tempered steelwire. They are 10 inches long of "warranted steel" and made in Germany. There is a notation on the paper that the pins are attached to that refers to a gold medal Brussels 1888. The box is in great shape, as is the "guarantee-band" that apparently guarantees they are genuine Dragon pins.
I'd like to know how old they are and what their value would be (if any since they are very plain black). I tried to find some background on the company (such as years in operation, location, etc.), but couldn't find anything. I'd appreciate any information anyone might have. Thanks in advance!
