Palestine/US: 1939 World Fair (NY) "Jewish Palestine Pavilion" commemorative silver-finished bronze(?) pin; not maker-marked; size: 28.5 x 30.5mm; weight: 2.35g. Obv.: urn w/flame; Eng. leg. "Jewish Palestine Pavilion" & name "Eretz Israel" in Heb. Palestine originally invited to participate in Fair under aegis of Great Britain, but in light of Arab Revolt & various policies restricting Jewish settlement, she was not sponsored & instead the Zionist leadership promoted a grand presentation at the fair which was not government sponsored (hence renamed from "Palestine Pavilion" to "Jewish Palestine Pavilion").
