Description
Israel: emblem pin of the city of Jerusalem, post 1949; not maker-marked; size: 14.5 x 31mm; 0.6g. The design depicted is the emblem chosen by the "Symbol Committee" in 1949, designed by a team of artists from the "Association of Jerusalemite Painters for Practical Graphics". Until then the city had no official emblem, although one had been chosen in 1943 - except that it hadn't received a final approval from the British "Royal College of Arms" due to the War. The pin back is constructed of a soldiered pin to the planchet of the emblem.
