Product Description
3 Vintage Pins, Green enameled Shamrock, Red enameled Butterfly and Sunny Yellow Original Smiley Face Circa 1970's. Wear these all together or share the love.

The vintage "Have a Happy Day!" bright yellow smiley face is original to the time period that this smiley face fad was popular. This is not a reproduction. It is in excellent condition, with great color and no damage. It is a vibrant sunny yellow with black smiley eyes and silly grin! The back of the pin shows normal wear for its age.

The Butterfly was a fashion trend in the 1970's through 1980's. Butterflies were seen in jewelry, fashion, and art, just about everything you can imagine had butterflies!
This vintage red enameled butterfly has wing tips of dark indigo with specks of white and yellow. The butterfly has a gold tone body and antennae. In excellent condition with average normal wear on the backside and pin works perfectly.

This vintage little lucky Shamrock is in very good vintage condition with a dark hunter green band outlining the shamrock and it has a Kelly green center. The lapel pin has gold tone details and stem. The back of the pin shows normal wear for its age. The pin back works perfectly. Wear this on your lapel or collar, or add to hat for a little Irish accent. Wear it on St. Patrick's day!

You could wear these pins clustered, on your shoulder or purse. Each would be a cute accent alone too.

The vintage butterfly measures approximately 2.5/8" in width and is about 1.5' in length.
The vintage Smiley face pin is approximately 3/4'" in diameter.
The vintage Shamrock pin is approximately 3/4" in length and 3/4" wide
