The 1998 trading pin:

The '98 pin commemorates the 'Woodland Indians, Mohegan Sachem' . It shows a tall 'artist reproduction' embossed on the pin, overlaying the State of Connecticut. As all newer Connecticut State pins, it shows the year, MD-23 and the site of the International Convention: Birmingam England.

There are two pins. The regular size pin has a raised Lions Emblem on the lower left corner. The larger, prestige pin adds life to the larger 'artist reproduction'. The artwork is owned by the Mohegan tribe in Uncasville, CT, and used with permission.

The following two links are to large graphic images of Connecticut Trading pins. The Older Series was reproduced from the Lions International Pin Traders 'State Pins, Color Pictorial Guide'. It covers the years 1959 to 1993. The Newer Series shows all current pins, and will be updated from time to time. These pages contain large graphic images and may take two minutes to load.
