What year was this made? Wasn't WW1 called the 'GREAT WAR' then WW1 after WW2 started?

think so, but not sure. pin just says world war. date on my research puts pin being made for a few years after war, up to 1920 or so.

Great pin. It says "World War" which was common for the time. the "I" was added after WW2. So either Great War or World War would indicate something between the wars. Interestingly, it has 1917 only, and not 1918 also. Very nice, I'd like to own that one myself!

Maybe that city had a specific unit that only served in 1917?

It was called THE World War early on, too. I've got some books published around the time of WWI that call it that.

 

It was also called the German-American War in smaller amounts. I have a WWI vet's ring that calls it that. I believe he bought it when he shipped out, as it is just dated 1917.


Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]


WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

This is from Brockton, Massa. for WWI veterans.


Anything just made for collectors just isn't worth collecting.
