The colorful vintage / retro look is very appealing to collectors and are quite the conversation piece. Some have a vintage patina and some look like they are brand new even if they are over 50 or 60 years old. They are wearable postcards and miniature works of art. Women documented their travels by collecting a souvenir shield charm depicting the town or country coat of arms crest, a scenic picture of the area, castles, a famous landmark (Eiffel Tower), building (White House), person from history (Mozart) or an event (Olympics). These charms were often given to women as gifts from their men who were traveling abroad. spacer type="block" height="1" width="1"  Wikipedia Info: Beverley shown within the East Riding of Yorkshire Beverley is a market town and is the major town in the East Riding of Yorkshire; situated in the Yorkshire and the Humber region of England.
