1920 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series Press Pin

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,851

Brooklyn Dodgers press pin issued for the 1920 World Series against the Cleveland Indians. This is an extremely high-grade example of this early press-pin rarity. The bright red enamel border reads "World Series" and "1920" in gold lettering. The center displays a convex baseball design in gold that reads "Brooklyn." The red enamel border is flawless, with no wear or scratching as is usually found with this pin. The convex design of the center of this pin usually makes the gold center section susceptible to much wear and scratching; on this example the wear is minimal. The reverse displays little-to-no wear, which is the exception rather than the rule with this pin. This is an outstanding example of this rare press pin and one that would be a worthy inclusion or upgrade in just about any advanced press-pin collection. Near Mint condition. Manufactured by Dieges & Clust; threaded-post back; oval with scalloped border. Diameter: 0.75 inches. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,851
