Southport vintage Fencing Pin 1904

From Southport Firemans Carnival on Aug.25, 1904

This is an antique metal pin of a lovely woman in a fencing outfit with afoil and red heart on the dress. She wears her hair in the style of that period, 1904. It was given out at the Southport, Connecticut Firemans Carnival on Aug.25, 1904. The cardboard to which it was pinned is torn, but legible. The pin is 2 1/2 inches tall and in perfect condition and charming. The metal is gold colored and shiny. The reverse is very shiny. A lovely piece of memoriabilia of women in sports back 100 years ago.
