Palestine/Yishuv(?): commemorative pin for Maccabi sports association's 10th anniversary, circa. 1905/1922; maker-marked in Hebrew letters 'Tzadi' and 'Shin'; size: 15.75 x 35mm; weight: 1.55g. The pin bears the early styled Maccabi emblem in a sun device, emitting rays, with a large Hebrew letter 'yud' (equivalent to the number '10') with Hebrew legend within: "Decade Celebration X"; the designer's initial are on the bottom right of the design. The piece appears to be a cast-make, and may date either to the 10th anniversary of Maccabi's founding in Constantinople, in 1895, or to the founding of the Palestinian branch of Maccabi in 1912.
