    Just had a quick flick there. I posted pics on page one five years ago. I look like a different person. Modern life is stressful. :eek:

    A shame so many of the posted photos have disappeared here as it was a source of pleasure seeing all these wonderful sheepskins & using them as reference material too.

    Its just a promotional pin sell between $9 - $35 ,now if you have the other pin given out by Irvin the 9kt caterpillar pin then you have something the eyes are ruby . Irvin still today keep the recipients of the caterpillar secret and will not give out that information .You only got it if you had to parachute out of a disabled aircraft these rang in price from $800 to $1500 .
