Very unique hard to find mid century plastic German hat pin, featuring three dangling charms from the wine making town of Rüdesheim am Rhein.

Plastic souvenir pins became popular in the 1970s, being much less expensive to produce than the earlier cast metal and sterling silver pins. They are still nicely molded with exceptional detail, and are skillfully hand painted with colorful enamels. This particular pin is a bit later, dating to the 1980s as the pin back is marked "Made in Germany". (Prior to this since the 1950s items were marked West Germany.)

The white plastic banner is printed with the name, jump rings hold the charms which include a burgundy wine bottle, a colorful gondola, and a round shield marked "Niederwalddenkmal". The Niederwalddenkmal is a monument located near Rüdesheim in Hesse, Germany. It overlooks the valley of the Rhine and was built in the 1870/80s to commemorate the Unification of Germany. Wonderful!

The pin measures 1.5 inches wide. It is in excellent vintage condition, the paint intact and still vibrant. The Niederwalddenkmal shield is a rare find!

Add this wonderful vintage pin to your Oktoberfest hat pin collection, makes a thoughtful gift!
