The U.S. Gallery.

The pins in this gallery are uniquely American and reflect American design, taste and culture. Although the U.S. Figure Skating Championships have been staged since 1914, the issue of a pin to commemorate a Championship did not occur until 1958 Minneapolis. One the earliest U.S. Championship pins produced was 1965 Lake Placid, currently on display here.

For convenience, the term "official" is used throughout this website to encompass all types of special-issue pins: those given to competitors, organizers, ISU representatives, media, guests, and so on. All pins on display at The Netropolitan are from the private collection of The Curator. Pins are shown at actual size, unless otherwise noted. In some instances, because of the small size of a pin, it may be difficult to easily read the year or venue; for this reason, each pin is titled with this information on the exhibit.
