This yellow SOUTH CAROLINA brooch - lapel pin is an upcycled piece from a 1940s J.K. Straus wood jigsaw puzzle map of the United States, and the wood brooch - wearable history pin is a great idea for a gift under $25! Were you born or raised or lived at some point in SOUTH CAROLINA? If so, this is the perfect unique item for you to wear! Do you have a family member or friend with roots in SOUTH CAROLINA? If so, this would be a unique gift to give that person.

The SOUTH CAROLINA wooden map piece is in excellent condition, and a locking pin back has been securely fastened to the back, so that this piece of history becomes wearable. The size of the brooch [at widest/longest points] is 2" x 1-1/4". This brooch - lapel pin is from my pet-free and smoke-free home and has not been worn.

When you purchase this brooch - lapel pin , it will come packaged with cardstock containing a close-up picture of the Rand McNally - JK Straus information on the puzzle, as well as a brief history of the puzzle. This will let you, or the person you are giving this unique brooch - lapel pin to, know that this is a piece of American history that can be worn with pride.

The J.K. Straus Company was founded by Joseph K. Straus in 1933 in Brooklyn, NY. The family-run company made wood jigsaw puzzles. The puzzle that this piece came from was made in the 1940s, as the company used tan boxes and added a picture of the puzzle on the box top in the 1940s. The Straus Company closed in the 1970s, when the last family member retired.
