Antimony is a major component of pewter, which is popular for making this sort of item out of. So it's perhaps not too far fetched that someone would make a pin like this out of plain antimony, though the only evidence for this is the unsubstantiated claim of the eBay seller. But why would he lie?
See the antimony goblets below for information about what the alloy is actually likely to be.
