A Look at Patriotic Lapel Pins
Perhaps the most popular type of lapel pin is the patriotic
pin. Dating back to the Civil War in the United States, lapel
pins that declare a person's patriotism are popular, highly
collectible and trade-worthy! From the Civil War through WWI,
patriotic lapel pins were medallions hung from ribbons pinned on
a lapel. After WWI, there were more factories and the ability to
mass-produce die-cast metal led to the popularity of die-cast
lapel pins. The trend took off and patriotic lapel pins became
more popular and collectible as the nation moved into a
depression and everyone tried to do their own part, even
something as simple as a lapel pin. The quality and craftsmanship
of these earlier lapel pins is excellent, and a single patriotic
lapel pin can sell at auction for $25.00 or more, depending on
the subject matter.
The most patriotic symbol for any country is the flag, and in
the US is no different! The American Flag is the most patriotic
lapel pin that a citizen can wear. Fortunately there is no
shortage of pins to be had! There are cloisonné, die cast,
sequined and any imaginable variation of the American Flag on
patriotic lapel pins. After 9/11 the sale of American Flags in
the form of flags, pins and signs skyrocketed from the shelves,
and today that patriotism is still evident with the American Flag
everywhere, including on lapel pins. An American Flag lapel pin
is a simple way to declare your feelings of pride in your
country. Many of our politicians and celebrities have begun to
wear patriotic lapel pins every day as part of their normal
dress. American Flag lapel pins are elegant, and come in a
variety of designs. Many people who travel internationally take
American Flag lapel pins along on their travels to exchange with
people from other countries or to hand out as small tokens from
Of course, there are many other patriotic lapel pins including
military pins in support of our troops, pins remembering the 9/11
tragedy and the police and firemen heroes also from 9/11. A
patriotic lapel pin gives recognition to those who have
sacrificed to protect the nation's freedom and rights, and shows
that you are aware and thinking of that contribution. The
commemorative Olympic lapel pins are also patriotic and among the
most sought after pins by collectors. So, dig out your Lake
Placid Olympic lapel pin and wear it with pride!
Many patriotic lapel pins can be purchased in 14karat gold and
sterling silver, which make great gifts. Be sure to shop
carefully and purchase a pin that truly reflects your patriotic
enthusiasm. Most of all have fun, enjoy your lapel pins and wear
