This is a listing for flawed or imperfect enamel pins. The selection is dependent upon which designs have flawed units. Some flaws are more obvious than others, but all of these pins are still very wearable. Seconds Grades (B Grades) have been deemed less than "Standard Grade/A Grade" and may exhibit some of the following imperfections...
Discoloration on metal
Dull or unpolished metal
Noticeable scratches on metal
Missing metal lines
Scratches and small gouges

This Astrolabe pin is a large 3″ piece set on a gold-plated metal featuring my artistic interpretation of an astrolabe. I styled this pin based on three historical Astrolabes. It is a decorative piece that would look great in a collection for space enthusiasts. This pin features four posts on the back for added stability because of the size, weight and balance of the piece. Due to the large size and delicate features of this item, each unit will be wrapped in a small sheet of bubble wrap and shipped in a sturdy padded mailer. International shipping may be more expensive than other items due to the weight of this piece.
