As part of the U.S. government’s effort to sell war bonds during World War II, these pins were issued by the U.S. Treasury. Much like the use of military insignia to identify its wearer (by association with an organization) and his/her achievements, these pins were meant to be worn by Americans on the home front during World War II to show their membership in an organization and/or their contribution to a particular war effort, such as the United War Work Campaign. The pins and buttons displayed the wearer’s patriotism and generosity and undoubtedly also served to prompt others to become similarly involved in the various war efforts.
