Pewter Mount Whitney Benchmark Medallion Pin

Item#: 333715




Standing proud at an impressive 14,505 feet tall, Mt. Whitney is the highest peak in the contiguous United States, but did you know that the elevation measuring methods have changed since the mountain was first benchmarked by the USGS in 1925?

The original benchmark at the summit indicates 14,494 feet above sea level, reminding us that scientific method can shift over time. Keep this sentiment close to your heart with this reproduction of the original benchmark, which is clearly engraved and appropriately sized for any outfit, whether it's your labcoat or hiking gear.
