Snagged this nice little homefront item for what amounted to $1.00!

Ah, the power of the press.

 

PUNCH PRESS that is!

 

Nice buy for a buck! :)

there was another part to that pin stamped out to look like a helmet, the loop just attaches to the pin on the backpost-195-1216147338.jpg, I don't know the story on these but have seen several.

Was given this thumbsup.gif several years ago by a WW II navy vet.

Can't remember think.gif if he said when he got this. I've had others tell me these were made after both world wars.

 

Top penny is dated 1920 and the bottom "helmet" penny is dated 1910.

Has a safety pin attached to the back of the top penny.
