Trivia, found via eBay ...True ?

CHRIS WHITLEY

National Steel Guitar promotional Pin - PROTOTYPE

Was to be used to promote Chris's 1991 debut album LIVING WITH THE LAW. Glen Yank, New York City artist, sculptor and jeweler, was commissioned to design and manufacture a limited jewelry-quality piece to be used in launching Chris's first album. It was decided that the per piece cost was too expensive; these promotional pins never went into production. There were only a few dozen of these pins made.

This pin was cast and hand-finished in his Lower East Side studio. Each one is unique; they are not machine-made. This is one of the prototypes from the batch that Glen submitted to Sony for approval.
