Sapphire Badge, 1953
This badge was an eBay rescue obtained by The Golden Key Alumnae Association, which I then “adopted” for my collection, as I didn’t have an example of an all-sapphire key. Strangely, this beautiful badge has only the chapter and date on it. This badge is from lambda chapter, which is at the University of Akron. (This is the second key in my collection from lambda chapter!) The badge is engraved 9/53. There are no initials or any name engraved on it, which makes it a little less fun, since I can’t research the previous owner. But it’s a lovely vintage sapphire key!
