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 War Savings Service was established to promote the purchase of War Savings Stamps, which were issued by the U.S. Treasury in late 1917 to fund American participation in World War I. The War Savings Service button was worn by Americans on the home front as a symbol of their "enlistment" in the effort to support the war through production and saving. Similar to military insignia that identify the wearer's association and achievements, the War Savings Service button was a way for individuals to display their patriotism and generosity. The buttons also served as a reminder for others to become involved in the war effort.
