Japanese School Pins

I found these pins in a drawer the other day... They were given to me by two high schools I taught at in Japan. At many schools all the students wear these pins as part of their uniforms. I love the old-style lettering, and the pin backs, which on two of them are flat disks that screw on to a thick threaded rod, instead of a sharp pin. 

This one was given to me as well, although I didn't teach at the school. The characters are Morizo and Kikkoro, mascots of the Aichi World Expo 2004, and since here they're representing Toyota Technical College Nagoya, they have a little screwdriver and a wrench!
