EBay Inc., San Jose, Calif., says two pieces of life insurance memorabilia have sold for more than $50 each in the past two weeks.
One piece was a gold pin issued by Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, New York, in 1927, to reward an employee for 20 years of faithful service.
The Boston dealer who offered the pin attracted seven bidders. The winning bid was $75.99.
