These were given to people who worked on the development of the Atomic Bomb or Manhattan Project. I've seen both the bronze and silver versions. I know the silver version can go for well over $100. Not to sure what the bronze is bringing. They are very collectible. I have no idea what it would be doing in a presentation case from Hawaii. Whitehead and Hoag was located in Newark, New Jersey and went out of business in the late 1950s or early 60s.
For some silly reason the government only awarded these pins AFTER the war was over!
