We found this pin at my FILs and while I have found lots of pictures and information on "Son in Service" pins I haven't found any that have the "Sons in Service" with 2 stars on it.  We know that at the end of WW2 3 of the brothers were in the service and think the 4th was as well but have been unable to confirm that.

 

Any information or what to look for would be appreciated.

I think the stars were more of a design element signifying multiple sons on these than an actual numerical representation, like you typically see on the service flag style pins.

Nice pin. I would write down what you know about the brothers on a card and pin it to it.

We already knew my FILS was a Seabee, his twin brother was on a escort carrier and the oldest brother in the Army in Europe. But we just found the obituary of the middle brother was also in the Army. So when my wife's grandmother was wearing this pin she had 4 sons on active duty.
