The small versions (PINBACK, no more nasty clothes-destroying screws! :jumping: ) are certainly neater and more elegant than the "human pincushion" look so beloved since tsarist times.

But why are they so EXPENSIVE? Surely the full-sized versions do not cost that to make, now that nothing is real gold or real silver or real enamel any more.

All togetheer mounted medal bars would be nice.
