#94 alloy used: brass, copper, tin and antimony, no lead. Hardest alloy employed in the industry, it permitted soldering of pin attachment as shown. Inexpensive casts are usually made from #5-10 alloys which is why they need riveted pinbacks as such soft alloys will not permit soldering. Sturdy cast should not bend or break when handled, f.ex. when attaching pin to dense fabrics such as denim, canvas, etc. Fully guaranteed, and cheerfully exchanged should mishap occur.
|Price: US$24.00, includes postage to your destination. As the pin is quite heavy in itself, no further discounts are possible even if multiple pins are shipped to the same destination. Please indicate preference for gold or silver plating when ordering. Orders may be emailed to Jewelcollect Owner-Administrator for confirmation, payment method and shipping information.|
