CANADA Veterans Pin, Beaver (made of Pewter)
Shield shape, 23mm high by 22mm wide. PEWTER, pin with button hole fastener on back. Word CANADA over a Beaver on a Log over 3 leaf plant design, small dots around outside.
I have has several of these in the past but have never had anyone able to tell me who would have been issued with them. I tend to believe that they are quite early, due to being made of pewter and the design, and likely issued to veterans of early Canadian Campaigns, Fenian Raids, North West Rebellion ect. Very nice pin. If Anyone know for sure where or who received these please let me know.
