 About Shield Charms:

These sterling silver enamelled travel shield charms were popular with European, British and American travelers in the 1940's, 1950's 1960's, 1970's, and are highly collectible items today. The colorful vintage / retro look is very appealing to collectors and are quite the conversation piece. Some have a vintage patina and some look like they are brand new even if they are over 50 or 60 years old. They are wearable postcards and miniature works of art.

Women documented their travels by collecting a souvenir shield charm depicting the town or country coat of arms crest, a scenic picture of the area, castles, a famous landmark (Eiffel Tower), building (White House), person from history (Mozart) or an event (Olympics).
These charms were often given to women as gifts from their men who were traveling abroad.

San Remo, Italy

Sanremo or San Remo[1] is a city with about 57,000 inhabitants and lies on the Mediterranean coast of western Liguria in north-western Italy. It was founded in Roman times and is now best known for being a tourist destination on the Italian Riviera and the host of several cultural events such as the San Remo Music Festival. It is also widely accepted as the origin of the Five-card stud variant, Telesina

The spelling of the city San Remo, is a phonetic contraction for the name San Romolo, the official saint and protector of the city (13th of October). The spelling San Remo is very antique, used from the fourth century when Saint Romolo, Genoa's Bishop (Saint Romulus of Genoa), lived in Villa Matutia. He evangelized, governed and helped the town after the bishop Siro. He lived in holiness of life and he did miracles to help his people.[citation needed] He died in this news town catholic. The citizen wanted to turn the name of the town Matutia on "San Remo" which in the local Ligurian sounds like San Rœmu (in accordance with the ligurian pronunciation to say Saint Romolo). Romolo became the official saint patron and protector of the city. The spelling San Remo can be read in all the ancient maps of Liguria, of ancient Republic of Geona, of Italy in the Middle Ages, of the Kingdom of Sardinia and also of the Kingdom of Italy. It was used in 1924 too, in official documents during Fascism. Only some years ago the problem of the official spelling began existing. This form of the name is still used on road signs, in lots of public certificates and tourist information.
