In response to Pin Money and hat-pins, written by The Mysterious H.C on October 08, 1997 at 18:16:45
] By the way, now that we're on the topic of pins, a stereotype of old Hollywood movies about the 1890's or 1910's was the young lady who fends off an attacker by pulling a long vicious hat-pin from her hat or hair, and I've had a mild curiousity as to when these long hat-pins came in, and how big they really were....
I have seen hat pins the size of a nice stilletto (the knife not the heel).
