Description

Preserved from a fraternal visit to Virginia's Arlington National Cemetery, this vintage pin pays due respect to the unknown soldiers felled defending America. Measuring 1-1/4"-diameter, the celluloid accessory has a black-and-white image of the tomb with a guard in the foreground. Attached is a red-white-and-blue ribbon hanger with an embossed legend reading: "National Odd Fellows Annual Pilgrimage to Tombs of the Unknown." With pinback intact, the piece is impeccably preserved.
