Vintage American Royal 1961 Sponsor pin. This pin is molded in a goldtone diecast metal, and is the shape of a king’s crown. It has the letters “A R” (American Royal) and in the center near the bottom is the number 61 (1961). Underneath a dark blue banner reads “Sponsor”. Overall the pin is in excellent condition, showing only minimal if any wear of any kind, and some light darkening to the metal from long storage, handling, and aging. Pin is about 1 inch by 1 inch, and made by Ballou in the USA.
