Sweetheart pins for the gals back home


Recommended Posts

Greg,

That's really neat that you have both the glider & parchute versions of that sweetheart pin. And your Mom wore them makes 'em even better!

Remember 25 to 30 years ago and you couldn't give sweetheart pins away? Nowdays they have finally attained the value they deserve in my opinion. I can remember when I first started collecting back in the mid 70's, that sweetheart pins were things the wives of some militaria collectors collected just so they could have something to do while the old man was at militaria shows. Things have changed.

Thanks for showing those pieces! thumbsup.gif

it seems sweetheart pieces are really gaining in popularity, especially bracelets. I collect USMC sweetheart piece because they offer such a wide range of EGA styles you'll never see on a regulation uniform piece
