Our country stands on the eve of a grand anniversary, and DAR is preparing to celebrate in a big way! This pin, seventh in a Limited 250th Anniversary Series, commemorates the Boston Tea Party, Edenton Tea Party and all historic Tea Parties.
Historic tea parties occurred as a protest against "Taxation Without Representation." The teapot depicted on the pin is from the DAR Museum collection and the ship represents all of the tea parties that occurred between December 16, 1773 and April 1775.
When this commemorative pin is worn by DAR members on the official Insignia ribbon, it must be placed according to the most current "Placement of DAR Insignia and Pins on Official Ribbon" document found on the Insignia Committee webpage.
When not worn on the official ribbon, DAR members may only wear this commemorative pin as a brooch, not on a right-side ribbon. When non-members wear this commemorative pin, they should demonstrate pride in all DAR stands for by wearing it only when dressed nicely and in a respectful manner.
Show your support of DAR's mission by adding the Boston & Edenton Tea Parties commemorative pin to your Insignia collection today!
This gold-plated pin measures 1" x .88" .
