Here's an unusual item. I've seen several of these over the years. I
don't know if this was an officially sanctioned Charlie item or if
someone made these at home, as this is the exact same "bust" that's on
the top of the standard (top hat) Charlie McCarthy spoon. I believe that someone
cut the tops off of Charlie spoons and made lapel pins from them. The
fasteners on the back are clutch devices (as used on military pins,
badges, etc.). Unfortunately, the little "clutches" themselves are gone, but the pins remain. You could use small bits of cork to insert the pins into, etc.
The pin has an unusual patina to it (it's clearly been treated with something to change the original silver color) and the area where the cut was made has been professionally ground and rounded. This is a very nice piece and makes a great conversation piece when you wear it!
