Q: Who buys vintage fraternity pins?
A: Fraternity and Sorority members who would like to preserve a piece of their history, alumni who have lost their pins, collectors, and national fraternities or sororities that collect and preserve their old pins.

Q: How are the pins prices determined?
A: Pin prices are generally based on age, condition, rarity, and gold/jewel content. Older pins with jewels tend to cost more.

Q: What are these categories all about?
A:
Fraternities - Fraternities with a national affiliation. Usually part of the NIC (National Interfraternity Conference) or NPHC (National Pan-Hellenic Council).
Sororities - Sororities with a national affiliation. Usually part of the NPC (National Panhellinic Conference) or NPHC (National Pan-Hellenic Council).
Locals - Fraternities or sororities not affiliated with national organizations, are from high school groups or pins that we cannot identify.
Professionals - Professional fraternities, often part of the PFA (Professional Fraternity Association) or ACHA (Association of College Honor Societies) or other pins that we can identify in Baird's Reference books but are not local fraternities.

Q: What about sales tax?
A:
By law, we are required to charge 8.25% sales tax on any pins or books sent to California.

Q: Why are these pins so rare?
A: These pins are coveted by their members of the respective fraternities. They are extremely hard to find. Anyone can buy a new pin, but a 100 yr. old pin, is something of another story!!

Q: Are you jewelers?
A: Absolutely not. Nor do we claim to be jewelers. Occasionally we will mislist the type of jewels in a pin, but we do our best to avoid this. What we are, is honest business people who do everything we can to satisfy our customers. We did just aquire a gem tester! If pins are listed as "genuine", then we have tested them as genuine. If they do not say they genuine or they say they areruby-like (for example), this means we either have not tested them yet. We will list simulated stones as such ionce we have tested them. Please contact us if you would like us to test the gems on any given pin.

Q: What is your return policy?

A: Pins are described to our best ability. It is your responsibility to check the sizes and weights given as these official (and some non-official pins) do come in varying sizes. Please ask any questions prior to ordering. It takes time and money to ready these pins to be shipped to you. Returns are only allowed when a pin is not described accurately. Shipping charges are not returned nor are Paypal fees. If you are unhappy with your pin, we will do everything in our power to help make things right. We have hundreds of happy pin buyers, and proudly, have yet to misrepresent any item. Buy with confidence!
