Golden Spike National Hist. Park Pin - Dated Spike
On May 10, 1869, the Union Pacific Railroad and the Central Pacific Railroad met at Promontory Summit in Utah Territory, which is now preserved as Golden Spike National Historical Park. This wedding of the rails formed the first transcontinental railroad in the United States. The golden spike, now a symbol of this historic moment, was one of four precious-metal spikes used in the ceremony. Celebrate the 150th anniversary of this momentous event with this collectible lapel pin, a miniature replica of the final spike! A handy butterfly clutch attachment securely affixes this pin to any fabric surface.
