This pin measures about 3/4 inches in diameter, and is in wearable condition. It is a genuine antique pin from World War I.
Liberty loans, also known as liberty bonds, were sold by the United States government during World War I to help finance the Allied forces. The purchase of these bonds was seen as a patriotic duty by the American public, and many chose to show their patriotism by wearing these pins.
Five rounds of liberty loans were issued, starting in April of 1917. The sale of bonds raised about $16.7 billion during the war (equal to about $339.8 billion today). Aside from helping to finance the war effort, they also introduced many Americans to the idea of financial securities for the first time.
