This sale is for a very nice vintage South Africa Gold mining pin. These are very hard to come by and when they do show up on the market they are picked off very quickly. Some were made in brass, as this one was, yet some were made of 9K-14K solid gold. We actually were just fortunate to have purchased this same type but in solid 9K gold. It should be arriving in the next few days. Obviously the gold one will be quite more in price than this one. One of the reasons these are so hard to come by is that collectors in Europe grab them up prior to them reaching the states. This one actually was purchased from an Estate in Australia. Approximately 2″ in length.
