Treasure Chest Thursday :: Work Badge

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Man's mother's work badge, sometime in the early to mid 1940's.  It is almost 2 inches in diameter.  The outer ring is metal, inner ring is a heavy paper, and the 3rd layer down is, of course, the photo.  Screw Machine Products was on Fort Street, near Outer Drive, Lincoln Park, Wayne County, Michigan.

Don't ya just love the back, the clasps to hold it together, the pin??  Ya, we do too!

What a great period piece!

At first I thought it was a joke, but then realized it's quite a treasure. I'm glad it was saved for all to see.

Wow! That pin looks so "over-engineered" by today's standards. Almost looks like a weapon. That pin is priceless! It's almost like owning a time capsule.

Great pin and history, but most of all a picture of a lovely young lady!!
