Collegiate Flag Pins

Classic collegiate pins in the shape of a flag is a nice collectible item and a nice way to show off your school spirit. Most of the pins alumni find desirable were produced in the 1910s, ’20s and ’30s.

The most elegant are those made of sterling silver, which almost always have a “sterling” mark on the rear of the pin. The sterling designation means that the metal is 92.5% silver, with the remaining consisting of other metals.

Many pins are made in a cloisonné fashion with an enamel material for the actual flag:
