    Ladybug, and Burlington Northern?

    I have two pins found locally. One is a 10K gold pin with two crossed gavels (officer) and a ladybug in the center. Is there such a group as Order of Ladybug? It has a guard pin with 1957 and 1958 (57, 58), so that gives an idea of the timeframe.

    I also have a 5 year and a 10 year pin with BN. Is this Burlington Northern?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ladybug may be a custom made piece. I can't find anything.

    I wondered the same thing, KK......

    I found info where one lady "started the SSLS without even knowing it" and am amazed at how unusual it all is.

    Great info, KK.

    I see where that one sold at auction 24 September 2007...

    And the maker's mark can be great help too, although I've had no luck so far.

    Yup. pretty much the same except your example looks like a pendant for a necklace.

    Sky Pilot, How can you say the B/N ID was right on when the person wanting the ID is the same one selling it? Sounds like someone is speculating to me. Just my honest opinion.

    @ Wildrider: I never paid any attention to who was sellin' the pin on ebay. In fact it never crossed my mind and never would've if you hadn't mentioned it and pointed it out.

    However you look at it, Mrs. Oroblanco found it on the 'net and (I'd bet she never saw who had it for sale either), so she deserves credit for the work!!

    The fact that we were misled (in my opinion) is another point. For sure someone is speculating here but it ain't me, it seems like Marble either already knows what they have

    (in which case why post it here? I have no clue!) or Marble was indeed speculating when they posted it.

    Either way, no deception or speculation on my end friend! I'm sure B had no idea either but I only speak for myself. I reckon I have a habit of takin' people at their word.

    Whatever the case, I'm glad you were thoughtful enough to look at who had posted the item on ebay, Wildrider.


    @ Marble:What gives Marble?

    Actually I took the ID response on face value myself too. But now that you brought it to light (and I clicked on the ebay link Mrs. O provided), your right. It is not the Burlington Northern Logo at all. This is-

    I would tend to believe that an employee pin would have the same logo as the one the RR used for it's 26 year history.
