What might this signify? It's a tie tack, about the size of a dime with a pin and clasp. From a distance the impression is of a snowflake. The design has six converging arrows. On the back is the word Kinney, and the clasp includes the words Kinney Co, Prov 3, R.I.
It was given to me by the widow of a former work colleague who had roots in Nova Scotia.
A Google search finds Kinney Concepts in Rhode Island but no company website.
