Personal Symbols

Objects originally created to communicate a particular personal belief, opinion, achievement, status, rank, occupation, membership, office, or identity. This class includes articles of adornment or clothing worn primarily for their symbolism; these objects may be assigned additional terms from Personal Objects to ensure appropriate cross-indexing. A personal symbol differs from a ceremonial object in that it expresses individual ideas, not the ideas of a group, or it communicates the relationship of individuals to a group.
