Online Auction Description

World War II “Son in Service” pin by Coro in sterling silver


Made by the popular jewelry maker, Coro, and worn by mothers of World War II servicemen in any branch of the Armed Forces.


There were several different styles of Sweetheart Jewelry, as this type of pin was sometimes called. Among others, there were round buttons or small bars with stars. Then there ones showing the eagle and flag, like this one.


Gilded sterling with red, white, blue enamel on the shield. 1 1/8” x 3/4”

The back is also gilded, stamped right at the bottom:

Coro

Sterling Pat.Pend.

(The majority of these pins available now have the stamp higher up, center back, with larger lettering – see the final image for example only)


Coro was actually founded in 1901 and incorporated under this name in 1943. It became one of the largest jewelry companies in the world with factories in England and Mexico as well as several in the United States. It no longer exists.


Replicas are readily available from military museum stores, usually at $10.00.

This is not a replica.


The mother wearing this pin during World War II was a Grosse Pointe, Michigan, resident. The son being honored was the elder brother of actress Julie Harris.

The pin has remained in the family.
