Not in the slightest! This is a common sweetheart piece! They sell between $20-$60! Now if it were one of the issue cap examples with the screw back they sell about $100-$130! So either way this is a horrible deal! 

 

A quick search of ebay will find you tons of these sold and for sale now! They are very common also!

The anchor on this pin is marked "10K."

These are less common and I've seen them sell for up to $145.

 

I've seen the more common "1/20 10K + Sterling" marked pieces

sell for up to $65.

Here's an ebay link to a "1/20 10K + Sterling" marked pin that sold for $100.

This one included the original H-H box.

Prices on those are all over the board, and honestly I think it's because a lot of people mistake them for cover emblems. These are in no way rare and collecting value I would say is around $35-$65 factors depending. Over $100 is just ridiculous for how often these turn up

I would agree with Brig as a follow up these are mistaken by newer and novice collectors as the real deal "cover emblem' which at times cause them to go for odd prices $80-$100. I have owned a number of these and worth more then the original price i quote any freak sales where buyers and sellers who had the item incorrectly ID'd

I Agree "Ridiculous"  I even think $35 is high for what they are
