Hat pins were habitually used as defensive weapons by women walking alone at night (their equivalent of threading your keys between your knuckles). After 1908 the law made them shorter so this example pre-dates that milestone. The gilt metal top has had some repair but is still stylish and elegant. This could definitely hold your big Ascot hat in place!
