This small square lapel pin uses raised gold metal and a primarily black background with a design featuring a red enamel Apple logo, an original Apple Desktop Bus (ADB) Mouse, and the words “Apple Desktop Publishing” cast in the Apple Garamond font.
The pin measures 16mm square. The back of the lapel pin uses a protruding perpendicular pin with a butterfly clutch to secure the pin to clothing.
This lapel pin was issued in 2002, Apple’s twenty-fifth year as a company, and its twenty-fifth year in the classroom. The pin has yellowed with age, but was originally light blue with a dark blue, red-orange, and white design. The pin measures 25 x 18 mm. My collection also includes a t-shirt with the same design in the same colors.
