Palestine: 1st Zionist Congress 40th anniversary commemorative delegate's pin, 1937; bronze; not-maker-marked (but possibly made by Kretchmer of Palestine); size: 53mm x 15mm; weight: 1.7g. Scarce, but not to be confused with the rarer original from 1897: this version is based on the original design but differs in the better, stronger quality of its manufacture with thicker planchet and sharper details; unlike the original which has a very delicate double-framed Star of David design, this version has a thick single framed Star; the original has a clear cut mini-star on the top, whereas this version has a round clump around it; the Stars and lion are larger and clearer than on the original. These pins were distributed at the 1937 20th Zionist Congress (in Zurich), to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the first congress, and were affixed to a Hebrew presentation placard which read, "Symbol of the First Zionist Congress 1897, Prepared According to the Original Die".
