Just a sweet old wooden soldier pin, who I assume once had eight comrades as part of a nine pin set. I really have a hard time passing these old hand-painted pins by, and especially love the face on this one, with two tiny dots for a nose, and eyes just barely peeking out from underneath that tall hat! Plus those gold buttons against blue coat.
It's been knocked around, with some paint loss as pictured, but still stands up proudly. 6 7/8" tall x 1 1/8" wide and deep.
