is a photo of a pin I found in my yard in 1961. I have always
been puzzled by it. It shows the New Jersey state emblem
in the center and the words Bellvale New Jersey around the
outside edge. I know there were border conflicts but from
what I had read I didn't think Bellvale was ever considered
part of New Jersey. The spelling on it appears is as we
spell Bellvale today and not as Belleville, New Jersey.
What a coincidence that I should find it while digging in
my garden along the side of my house! Does anyone have any
more information or ideas about this?
