About four decades back when I had just returned from Philmont for the first time a friend gave me a small bronze pin he said he found somewhere.  It looks like a philmont arrowhead about 5/16 " long but with a tiny red triangle in the center.  I assumed ( oh that word!)  that it was some sort of OA Vigil award and therefor unwearable by me. So I put it in a little box along with some year pins and such.  

 

Any one know what it is?  Or where I should look?

I'm not sure on that.  I would have to agree, it sounds like a Vigil pin.  Do you have any pictures?

Seems like it's an Indian Guides pin.

A triangle was the YMCA symbol until 1967 and the arrowhead for its Indian Guides program

Yup, an Indian Guides Pin.   Darn, I was hoping it was a vintage Vigil lapel pin for non uniform wear.   I guess I could still wear it, I was in Guides for a year or so.  Unlikely though.    Thanks anyway  Tahawk
