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

The North 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 3" x 1-1/4".

When you purchase this brooch - pin, it will come packaged with cardstock containing a close-up picture of the Rand McNally - JK Straus information on the puzzle, and 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.

Need a unique gift idea for a friend, colleague or loved one who is a US native? You undoubtedly have American-born friends, loved ones or colleagues who have roots in the US state they were born in, and they might really appreciate a unique & affordable gift that is a piece of wearable history. If you are a politician, you represent a certain state in the halls of Congress or the state Legislature, and you would stand out from your colleagues with a wearable history lapel pin of your state! I have hundreds of US State brooches/lapel pins available - all are upcycled wood puzzle pieces from 1887 through the 1970s era. If you go to the link for my shop www.Etsy.com/shop/ME2Designs and then in the search bar at top that is titled "This Shop", type in a state name, everything I have available for that state will appear in the search results.
