Oregon State Pinback with Charm

This pinback with the original ribbons and plastic charm is likely from the 1950’s and possibly from the 1957 Rose Bowl.  It is uncommon to find these vintage school pins with ribbons in the first place and even more uncommon to find them with the original charms as well.  Typically, the charms are small footballs dangling from a piece of chain or fabric.  This is the only Oregon State ribbon I have found with a plastic charm that is hand painted showing the two tackling football players.
