1934, according to Pi Phi's website.

And that badge is beautiful.

Does anyone know which fraternity or sorority this pin comes from? I think it is probably a local, but I wasn't sure if it belonged to an organization I was unfamiliar with. BTW those are not my nails.

Somebody couldn't decide if they admired KKG, Theta, KD, or SDT the most? Wow!

And that Pi Beta Phi pin! VERY swoon worthy!!!!

We have a Pi Phi in the family, as of this morning! I'm so glad her badge and guard arrived in time for initiation. It has a diamond in the arrowhead, which is hard to see. I can't wait to see Generallygreek and her new badge in person!

Here's an updated picture of my SAI badge with some new bling! It's my most blinged-out badge. I don't have guards or dangles on my AGD badge.

Wow...that is some serious "blingage."

Thanks...she says it's "so beautiful." I think she's very proud of it.

Her roommate is a new ADPi. We're visiting campus for Easter, and I am looking forward to seeing her badge, too, if she's received it already. She ordered alternating aquamarines and pearls. Coincidentally, my freshman year roommate also joined ADPi...she wrote my daughter's rec.

Engraving on Bottom of AXO pins

I just purchased a vintage alpha chi pin on eBay and the bottom is engraved AM-797. The pin is stamped with a balfour mark. Does anyone have any idea what those numbers stand for or when this badge might have been made?

Tracking with our HQ to know which member that badge belonged to originally. Only HQ can tell you and if you are not a member they will not.

She says she's a member of AXO in her introduction post, so she should call HQ and they will know what it stands for.

If she's really an Alpha Chi, she oughta know the significance of the numbers on the pin of her own org.

Always SAI, do you have multiple chains on your pin to hold the dangles? Or is it one continuous chain?
