    Very Old King Pin

    We have come across this very old King pin and know nothing about it. The round pin itself is around a half inch in diameter and is attached to a safey pin style about an 1 1/2" long. Does anyone know what King this would be and if this item would be of any value. Thanks in advance for any help you can give us.

    King George V

    Your Photo pin is of King George V of England.
    Here is a link to a little information on him......
    George V of the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    These photo pins are great to collect. Their value however is minimum. I have seen similar pins sell for for under $20.00
    Thank you for using worthPoint!

    Thank you so much for the info. We really appreciate this. We however thought this may be of had great value being so small that I am sure many would have been lost or thrown out over the years. Good to know what it may be worth. Thanks

    Many thanks, Maggie!

    Noonfan, Value is not always measured in cash, it may have had great sentimental or souvenir value to its previous owner or owners... I think it is quite handsome and would make a great conversation piece if worn as a lapel pin on a blazer. Cheers!
