Pentagon shaped pin: shovel & axe w/Star of David; Bulgarian leg. transliterated from Hebrew, "Chevra Kedusha(sic) Burials(?) Sofia 1910". Rev.: safety-pin + maker's mark. The Sophia branch of "Chevra Kadisha" existed prior to WW1, then re-established: referencing "Chevra Kedusha", pin probably from the original society (while other pins bearing the name "Tzedek veEmet" are probably from the re-established society from 1921).
