10k Gold Alpha Chi Rho Yale Chapter Fraternity Pin ??? 1934:
Presented is a superb quality vintage 10 karat gold, pearl and garnet pin, for
the Alpha Chi Rho fraternity. The pin is shaped like the letters of the
fraternity, all overlaid on top of one another and with a hand and torch on
either side. The chi and the bridge of the alpha are set with little garnet
cabochons, while the rho and the oval background of the pin are set with real
seed pearls. The backing oval part of the pin also has rich blue enamel, for a
nice contrast. The back of the pin is engraved with the name Robert Wesson Taft,
and '34 for 1934, as well as the letters “phi delta” which I believe are for
Yale University's chapter. The pin has a rollover style safety clasp, and a tiny
loop where a dangle could be added.
The pin is in great condition. All the pearls, garnets, and enamel are
intact. The clasp function well and closes securely.
The pin measures about ¾ of an inch long and about 3/8 of an inch wide.
The pin weighs 4.2 grams. -jm
