Price listed if for 1/2 ounce of pins. These are the old style pins for brooches. These could be either silver or nickle plated brass. The new style of brooches are more like an eye pin with a loop. The old style like these have little nodules that sit inside the recesses of the swivel on the brooch. These are perfect for repairing vintage brooches. They measure approximately 1 11/16'' long with a 19 gauge (0.035''). There should be around 50 pins in each half ounce. Some of these are missing a nodule and can be cut and rolled to fit a shorter new style brooch.
