Wasn't there someone making new Stratoliner pins?
Here's mine: an Adam with a spitfire pin, an open road with the ubiquitous route 66 pin and a Knox Westlite with a silver pin, aircraft unknown although it may be an ME109.
I ordered one of these; It's on my Campdraft at the moment. It has the exact same pin and keeper on the back as the originals.
Back from the foundry...
See the ad in the classifieds.
Just Won it on e-bay!!
1930s St. Christopher Pin w/ Zeppelin, Streamline Train
Not sure which hat this is going on, but I fell in love with the Zepplins and streamliner. Here is the description:
"Offered here is a fantastic St. Christopher pin or badge that features St. Christopher and a child in the center with St. Christopher Be My Guide around the perimeter. That element is set in the middle of a globe with wings on either side. In each of the four corners are the different modes of transportation at the time: airplane, zeppelin, streamlined train, and streamlined automobile. The design on this pin is excellent, and the condition is just as good. There is a small loss of the tin plating, especially on the high spots, but there is no rust or other damage."
New Plane Pin on my Stratoliner
I got this VERY nice Stratoliner pin made by Zemke Fan to go on my Stetson Stratoliner hat. Very HIGH quality product, great craftsmanship, solid piece of metal...
Got two more of these on sale in classifieds...
Why did I have to read this thread? All those hundreds of hat pins I've collected, and the dozens more my grandpa left in his drawer when he died are still hanging around. I thought I was safe from pin fever, and that I'd leave all my nice fedoras un-pierced. Now I've already ordered one of Zemke Fan's and I'm thinking of digging out all my old cowboy beaters and seeing what's there. I know I've got a solid gold "horse apples" pin somewhere that's always a conversation starter, and my grandfather sometimes wore a pair of gold 38s on one of his (PG-13 kind, not the firearms). You guys are really a bad influence. Maybe I could just stick them all on a wool beater fedora and look like one of the crazy old men that cook for trail rides. Frank
Got this one from Colby Jack.
Here's my new oil derrick on my Stetson Temple
I've got some more pins I'll post later.
On my VS.^
Is that a recent production Strat pin? If so, where can I purchase one?
I was gonna ask the same thing, I would love to pick one up.
Look one post below the one with the photo you quoted. He's sold a bunch of oldies and has had repros made that might still be available.
Just send me a PM...
Heading to PHX for a long weekend, but contact me and I will set you up.
I work for Mack Trucks, so when I came across this old bulldog pin I had to have a go with it!
Now that is cool. :eusa_clap
has anyone tried magnets
A couple questions regarding pins...
Is there any style of hat where pins are not really appropriate for?
I have two Snoopy award pins which I am very fond of that I'd like to put on my two Akubras...I would not want to lose them as they are not really replaceable. The Akubras have leather bands and I don't want to punch a hole in the band nor do I want to punch a hole in the felt.
I was wondering if anyone has tried using the tiny very strong rare earth magets like I have seen in other applications. You would glue one magnet to the back of the pin and place a second magnet inside the crown where you want to place the pin and bring them together. The two magnets get into a death grip through the felt and shouldn't come loose.
