This 1.25 inch pin is nothing like the pins you're used to seeing. It's innovative and better in so many ways. This pin was engineered by a law enforcement officer to his dream specifications. It is a true two-piece process made using two molds. The flag is very high end cloisonné and the shield is 3D. The shield is made separately and then it is through-soldered to the flag for a true 3D finished effect. Not glued like other pins you may see and that means it won't fall off. The back of the pin features dual pin posts to ensure it can be worn straight and will never spin upside down. We do not like when flag pins spin upside down and thats why we use two pin posts instead of one. This pin was crafted with true pride using the respect and thoughtfulness our flag and shield deserve. Wear this with honor.
