Oregon State Pin – Split Color – c. 1940-1950’s

This older Oregon State pin isn’t all that creative in style and it lacks a ribbon and charm, but it seems to be one of the harder to find OSU pins to find as I have only seen a couple of them in the last few years.  It’s also the only OSU pin I have seen with the split color down the middle. The font of the text is unique in the at the letters are more block style with each letter having some type of straight lines (like the S and the O), whereas nearly every other pin has the more traditional curvy font where the O really is an oval and the S is curved with no straight lines.  I’m not sure of the age of this pin, but if I had to guess I’d say it’s likely from the 1940’s-1950’s.
