Earlier this year we lucked into a once-in-a-lifetime find: a collection of vintage athlete pins in hand-cast pewter that were never sold to the public. Designed and cast by a master pewtersmith in Inverness in 1998, these pins feature the iconic heavy athletics of the traditional Scottish Highland Games.
The collection includes:
- The Caber Toss
- The Hammer Throw
- The Sheaf Toss
- The Stone Put
- The Weight for Height (in two different pins)
- The Crane Tara (great for clan chiefs!)
- The Bagpiper
We have scoured the web and our favorite vintage collections for any sign of these amazing pins, and we’ve come up empty handed. These very limited-run pins are truly a County Argyle exclusive. Check out the collection before they are gone!
