A vintage First Australian Imperial Force (AIF) privately purchased World War I era pin in 9K yellow gold. This 1-5/8" long x 3/4" tall pin appears to have been privately commissioned, as it is 9K gold and it is a copy of the 1904 Type 2 Rising Sun medal, and was most likely produced as a wife/sweetheart pin. It has the early crown and rays, it is fully hand engraved including the legend AUSTRALIAN COMMONWEALTH MILITARY FORCES, and it is stamped 9CT on the back of the pin and on the clasp/closure. It is rose gold with a deep yellow gold wash - you can see traces of the rose gold beneath. It has a old safety-pin style catch, and it is in overall excellent vintage condition with no breaks, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs, but please note there are a couple of minute dents on the bar pin section.
