A rare and unusual early 20th century stick pin designed in the shape of a 5 lead shot shotgun cartridge. The body of the shell is smartly carved from a cylindrical shaped piece of green chalcedony, which is gold capped and set with a small diamond chip. On the opposing side of the shell the number ‘5’ is printed to represent 5 lead shot style cartridge. The 5 lead shot is a form of shell thats still used today and is very popular and widely used load for pheasant and duck hunting around the world. A great pin for any avid collector.
