Peace, man

I dished this 14ga. brass circle several years ago and never decided what to do with it.  Last week, the idea hit me.

The front is etched with ferric chloride (a full hour this time) and patinated with some other kind of ferric compound, probably nitrate.

The back has a one-piece, fibula-style pin, secured with plenty of silver solder.  The back and front are finished with a polyurethane varnish to try and preserve the burnished finish for a while.

Since my casual jacket right now is an old surplus jacket (a Swedish M59, to be specific) I figured some peacenik regalia would balance it out a bit.
