I'd love to see a picture of the back. Not entirely what I've seen before for the unit, but it looks well made and the crest in the middle looks similar to known Italian examples. I like it alot. Best ABN

Here's another pin - but this one I have concerns about. Honestly, both are on eBay right now and listed by the same seller. This signal crossed ski pin just looks too poorly made. Most importantly the pin with the ice axe, rope, etc is of more interest to me. I have about 10 crossed ski pins, and all are fairly well made but this signal pin . . . well, check out the photos.

On the reverse look how the one ski is bright and shinny, but the other is heavily tarnished. Also check out the excess solder holding all three pieces together - certainly not done by a jeweler, in my opinion.
