Scovill Service Award Pin

Description (Brief)
The Scovill Manufacturing Company of Waterbury, Connecticut produced this pin around the middle of the 19th century. Scovill was established in 1802 as a button manufacturer that is still in business today. Scovill is an important example of early American industrial manufacturing that adapted armory machines to mass-produce a variety of consumer goods including buttons, daguerreotype mats, medals, coins, and tokens.
This pin has an “S” in the center with a blue background, and reads “SCOVILL” across the center. “SERVICE AWARD” is written at the bottom, and there is a small jewel at the top.
