9-11 WORLD TRADE CENTER Pin (PUS025) - 1" x 0.75" - $3.00
Gold tone metal base with enamel colors measuring approx. 1" x 0.75". Shows the Statue of Liberty with the New York skyline (including the World Trade Center Twin Towers) in front of the US Flag. Beneath the Statue of Liberty is a blue area with the date "SEPT. 11.2001" showing in gold tone. Above is a white space with 'WORLD TRADE CENTER" in gold tone. There are bands of smoke whirling around the Twin Towers.
Originally, the design without the WTC name and date was a common New York City souvenir. After 9/11, the manufacturer recalled the design and reissued it as a 9/11 commemorative shown here. Some call the original design (see product code PUS024) prophetic for having the smoke around the Towers long before 9/11, but it was just part of the design and never meant to mean anything.
The back has a single spike with rubber clutch.
