Pin identification help, please!

Hi Theta Ladies!
I recently acquired a very tiny pin that I'm told was once sold as a lapel pin. I called the archivist at headquarters to get more details but wasn't able to find out much. Does anyone know when these were made? Thanks in advance!

That's some sort of recognition pin or just a mini badge replica. It isn't gold. It is cute though, enjoy!

I saw that one! They are cute. I even have one myself It is a badge replica, no engraving or way to tell exactly when they were made. They seem to have been around in the 50's, as far as I can tell.

It's a recognition pin. They are about $5.00 at HQ (at least that was the cost last time I saw an order, a few years ago) - can only be ordered through HQ for special occasions (like Founders Day awards). Nothing special about it, sorry. It's gold-filled or some base metal or something. I've got one. They come up all the time.
