A couple of days ago I picked up an envelope at the post office. It was filled with pins! 😀
These are membership pips. I know some use them in different manners, but in my area we use them to show how many years we’ve been members. My membership was approved in December 2015, so I currently use two pips — soon three. It would be expensive to buy a single pip each year, so I bought a couple of extra.
The pins are small, about 1,3 cm in diameter, and display the imperial cog in an antique gold finish.
