Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very beautiful “sweetheart” pin from the early 1940s. This pin was promoted by the Honolulu Community Chest as a fundraising item for aiding the Community Chest.  
 
The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 ignited not only anger towards the enemy, it also sparked a wildfire of patriotism in every American in all corners of the country. As the war effort was kicked into overdrive, Americans did everything they could to remind each other why they were fighting and what could be lost. A prime example of these reminders is this brooch you are looking at here. It is very patriotic in nature and design, with the slogan “Remember Pearl Harbor” with a pearl instead of the word “Pearl”. In the early years of WWII how could you not remember Pearl Harbor?
 
This brass finished rhodium pin features a beautiful tropical scene of a military battleship in a harbor. There is a mountain in the background and coconut trees in the foreground on the left and right. At the very top of the pin is a Japanese Mitsubishi Ki-51 “Sonia” light bomber/dive bomber. At the very bottom of the pin, the following can be found:
 
REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR
12-7-41
 
The paints have retained quite nicely throughout the pin, as well as the finish. The pin arm and locking catch are in perfect working order. The brass colored finish on the backside is almost completely retained with very minor isolated spots of wear.
 
This was a pin that shows signs of being proudly worn and cared for throughout the years of WW2 and more than likely the post war years and anniversary memorials.
 
Comes more than ready to be added into any WWII American Homefront and Pearl Harbor collections.
