The stickpin is metal and closes with a simple C clasp. It is designed for the bars of the horse shoe to hang down. The belief at the time was that Luck would pour over, and thus protect, the person wearing the pin. (If you want to wear it the other way around you should consider having a jeweler change the clasp.)
The whip and stickpin are 1/2” long. If you decide to wear this in the huntfield, we suggest you carry a traditional bandage pin in your pocket. Should you need to use your stock as a bandage, this pin is too delicate & small (not to mention, valuable) for that purpose.
