Our pewter pins are oxidized to bring out the detail and usually have two tie tacks on the reverse side to ensure safety. The tack clasps are the butterfly style used in the military and while simple, are also secure.
Pewter is soft, so store separately in a plastic bag or box. Since pewter does not tarnish, you can pin it to a favorite hat, jacket or sweater and hang it in a closet. Our pewter comes with a matte finish but over time and wear, it can polish in places. If you do not want this to happen, store your piece in the ziplock bag in which it was received.
