Are you sure that is not made from pure tin?.... Silver oxidized to black quite quickly, tin does not....

Sorry, I misunderstood.... When you said you "found" it, I assumed that was the case, as in lying around outside or buried somewhere.... not in a collection....  ;)

Can be used a tie tac (Remember? Ties?) or in my case an embellishment for the hat.

Very cool. I really couldn't tell scale from the picture. I figured it was something larger but now it makes sense.

Too bad you didn't pick up a 14K one too.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".

John,
I was a struggling (not like now)USAF air traffic controller in 1984 when the pin was purchased.
Bob had the gold one on display in San Rafael (47 Paul Drive) but when you have two boys in high school dreaming of colledge...well you know..
