    19th century VMI hat pin

    Found this today in Northumberland Virginia around a house site that dated from the 1820s to the 1890s - have found lot of good 19th c relics around this site before, haven't hunted it in almost 3 years though. Click image for larger version.

    I do know this hat pin is earlier than 1912 because the VMI hat pins produced after 1912 had a clip pin attached to the back- this does not. If anyone knows please chime in...

    Here is one posted on TreasureNet Old Hat Shield this is the 1912 year + because of the pin on the back... Mine does not have pin so it has to be earlier.. perhaps 1880s-1890s?
