These distinctive collectible lapel pins are created by hand in the USA. They are hand modeled in clay by noted sculptors, and then individually cast in the finest quality pewter. Whether you are a novice or true collector, you will appreciate the artistic value & quality in each piece. We have selected as part of our collection, pins that celebrate our great state of Michigan. The American Robin (Turdus Migratorious ) is our Michigan State Bird. Michigan designated "robin redbreast" as the official state bird in 1931 after an election held by the Michigan Audubon Society.
