I have seen several in plastic but painted.

 

Maybe this one just never got a coat of paint?

Normally the plastic ones I have/have seen are blue.

This is an interesting pin. No doubt original. I can't recall ever seeing one made of this material. I do know that uniform buttons were made during the war of some vegetable material and have the look of plastic. This might have been made before the war ended when brass was still rationed. However, years ago while scrounging in the basement of an Army and Navy store that was closing, I found several thousand of these pins made of sterling silver and gold plated. It would certainly have been more economical to make them of some base metal. Sterling jewelry was fairly cheap in those days so maybe the ones I found were made for people who just wanted something a little flashy.
