Ref  JD1   My Eye !

A one-off, drole visual pun lapel pin, circa 1840. The high carat gold pin is set with an enamel eye with blue iris surmounted by the word My. 'My eye!' was an archaic expression that implied doubt or disbelief - if the eye did not see it, then it was not proven to be true. The pin is 3.5 inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide across the eye. Fine quality, substantial and immaculate.
