Don't let this one go!

Hello Kappas,

I'm very much a lurker, not an active poster. I'm an Alpha Gam at that so I apologize for intruding on your forum. I surf eBay a lot looking at antique jewelry and ran up on this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/1909-Gold-Kappa-...QQcmdZViewItem
. It certainly looks authentic, and if this were an Alpha Gam item I'd give a LOT for it. It looks like it could be a priceless piece of history for you. Just thought I'd point it out--I certainly hope a Kappa gets it. I'm not the seller or affiliated with them in any way. I'd just hate to see a piece of history like this in the wrong hands.

If the link doesn't work it's Item #270192458924, "1909 Gold Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity Pin w/Paper".

Wow, it even has the certificate with it! This shows why it's so important to let family know exactly what to do with your badge if you pass away.

Ah! It almost causes me physical pain to see badges on E-bay. There are FOUR right now. *cries* One of them is the same as mine, too, so it makes me a little bit more sad.

What's weird is that a lot of these sellers start the bidding wa-a-a-ay above the price of a new one. I understand why (don't know if they have sold any that started out high), but I just think it's silly. I saw one of our recognition badges (which costs $6.50 for GF, $22 for 10K) go for as much as one of our regular badges!!!

Not weird, they're just mistakenly informed that Kappas will pay anything for badges.

Oh hey, I bet you ladies can answer this question. I found a 50-year member pin at an antique store, and I bought it because it shouldn't be in there. Should I send it to someone at HQ? I know they would want a badge but what about a 50 yr pin?

It's perfectly okay for you to keep it! Even though you aren't a 50-year-Kappa (yet ) you are keeping it within the Kappa family, and that's what the Keepers strive for.

What is this?
http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Kappa-Ka...QQcmdZViewItem

It looks like the 50-yr pin but there are 3 pearls instead of the number 50. Hmmm...

Hmm... and ours aren't sterling silver either. It's very pretty, but I'm wondering how the seller listed it as a Kappa pin, with no markings.

Yeah, I tried looking for anything like it in A History 2000, but didn't find anything. I'm thinking it's a misinformed seller... or one who just doesn't care

I found something really similar on Herff Jones's site... only difference I can see is that it doesn't have the pearls...

(and there's a link to a Fleur de Lis pin with 3 pearls on their site too... there just isn't a picture.)

Ahhh! I bid on an all pearl badge from the 40's but I keep getting out bid. It isn't that expensive right now (about $50) but I can't spend that much on it. I'm pretty sure the person I'm betting against isn't a Kappa. Ahhh!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=110222319878

Anyone?
