10k Soroptimist International Assoc. Pin
This pin was manufactured by Balfour around the 1970's for an organization gathering. The name "Soroptimist" was coined by combining the Latin words soror "sister" and optima "best", and can be taken to mean "best for women." The pin face is adorned with the figure of a lady with her arms outstretched towards the sky. There is NO loss of blue enamel and NO breaks, dents or cracks to the metal work. It comes with it's original blue and yellow felt pin backer. There is a small loop on the back that held a small chain and additional pin. The chain is not attached. A great vintage gift for that lady who is joining this amazing organization or for one who is celebrating a Soroptimist anniversary.
