Promotion award pin FC Thun 1953

Promotion award pin FC Thun 1953

For the first time in its history, the football club FC Thun was promoted to the top tier of the Swiss Football League in 1954. Moreover, this happened only one year after the club was promoted from the "1. Liga" (3rd tier) to the Nationalliga B (2nd tier). On this occasion, FC Thun received a trophy (s. picture below) and each player an award pin (a miniature copy of the trophy). There's a picture of the backside of the pin on the bottom of this page. I'ld realized, that most of these pins were thrown away by the heirs of the former FC-Thun-players. So this might be one of the last existing specimen.
