Pin representing luggage tag for stored baggage on White Star liner.

This pin represents a luggage tag used on the Cunard White Star ocean liner. Baggage with this tag would be placed in a hold where no one was expected to need access until the end of the voyage. This kind of tag was frequently used by all transatlantic liners, but this particular one was used after Titanic sank and after Cunard acquired White Star. I found this pin on the Queen Mary II during a crossing in 2012.
