History Of Use
Possibly won for the category of "Sheaf Sweet Clover" or "Pickling cucumbers, pint" as an F.A. Gilbert placed second for these categories in 1923. No fall fair was held in 1933, so the date that was associated with this ribbon by the former owner seems incorrect. Likely it was also from 1923.

History Of Use
Although this small artifact looks like a pin, it does not have an actual pin component with which to affix it to clothing, etc. In addition, no other pins from the Bulkley Valley Fair have ever been discovered. Thus, this item was likely originally part of a prize ribbon; small buttons were sometimes affixed to the center of ribbons (see 2019.10.2 and 2019.10.3 for examples).
