The Washington Family coat-of-arms is surmounted by a "flying griffin", a mythological creature that was featured on the family crest for generations. George Washington placed the griffin, a winged lion's body with a bird's head, on many of his most important possessions including his bookplate, silver plate, and presidential coach. In 1757 Washington acquired a mahogany version of his coat-of-arms which he placed in the front parlor at Mount Vernon, "the best room in the house".
The Griffin lapel pin with pewter finish is 1" tall ¾" wide.
