This pin measures about 3/4 inches in diameter, and is in wearable condition. It is a genuine antique pin from World War I.
The American Red Cross was a major organization that provided relief during World War I. The organization, like many others, created pins and buttons for Americans on the home front to wear as a way to show their support and membership, as well as their contribution to war efforts such as the United War Work Campaign. These pins and buttons served as a symbol of patriotism and generosity and likely encouraged others to become more involved in the war effort as well.
