NEW YORK CITY TWIN TOWERS (PUS024) - 0.75" X 1" - $2.00
Enamel color on a gold tone metal base measuring approx. 0.75" x 1". Shows the Statue of Liberty in the foreground with a rainbow directly behind her. In the background is a skyline of New York City (including the Empire State Building and the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center) in front of a US Flag.
Many show slight imperfections as they were mass produced souvenirs of New York City. However, they became collector's items after the 9/11 attack. If you look at the design, there are what many perceived as bands of smoke curling around the Twin Towers in a forewarning of the disaster ahead. Following 9/11, the manufacturer recalled many of them and issued a new pin using a modified version of the design. (see product code PUS025 for modified version).
The back has a single spike with rubber clutch.
