Antique Sterling Enamel 1905 Class Pin Parkersburg High School PHS WV. Our local high school is somewhat legendary as the first high school in the state of West Virginia. Founded in 1867, the school moved into the "new building" in 1917. And yes, that building is still in use!
The fleur de lis on crescent moon pin is decorated in red and white enamel, with the letters PHS. The crescent moon has 05 in enamel. This pin is a beautiful example of early PHS jewelry.
