I scored a nice IH lapel pin at auction. Any ideas how these were acquired originally?

As the title says, I won a gold IH lapel pin with a blue stone in the dot over the I. Does anyone here know how or why these were awarded? Could they have been for executives, or for years of service, or? I don’t wear lapels very often, so it is now a hat pin in a hat that needs replacing.

It's an IH 35 year Service pin.

It is a Service Pin but it's also from the IH Truck Division not the Agricultural Equipment Division of International Harvester :).

They would also send lapel pins, money clips, key chains as well as other thing in stock order from time to time. Received many that way and would pass them on to good customers.

I have to add that the IH logo is one of the best ever. So simple, but still so descriptive-of the AG division anyway.

It looks like it might be. I wonder if Steve, Paul, or Digger could fill us in? Or I could go try to cut glass with it...

Might I have an auction problem if my auctions won page is almost as long as my auctions watched page?

Tonight I won a laptop to be dedicated for auto diagnostic software, and a vintage Stewart Warner contact tachometer that should come in handy for Cub Cadets, and my work.
