Just picked these up today at an estate sale. I have 2 sterling ones with the V and the other is 10k without the V. Sterling ones have a makers mark but the gold one doesn't. I know about the WW2 "V for Victory" sign but I don't think (could be wrong) these are that era. Can't figure out what the background image is. Anybody have any ideas?

Just tidying up some blasts from the past (including some very ancient ones), largely for the benefit of anyone searching the site for information.

Scarce badge. The logo is for the ‘Visiting Nurse Service’ of New York, as on this hat badge:

The service was Founded in 1893 by nursing pioneer Lillian D. Wald and Mary M. Brewster. It’s now one of the largest not-for-profit home- and community-based health care organizations in the United States, serving the five boroughs of New York City; Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties; and parts of upstate New York.

That’s a WWII era badge and I believe the additional ‘V’ is indeed intended as a patriotic ‘Victory’ emblem.

As soon as I saw the date, I said "Red-Coat solved another one"

That's pretty close to what I said. :)

As some of you know, I've been darn-near incapacitated during the past several years by a mysterious, extremely painful "Medical malady." But I can still read the W-I-I-? forum. It helps distract me from the pain... and I do love continuing to Learn from the wonderful "ID-helpers" here.

So, I should make a copy of this reply and post it as a stand-alone message, so that ID-helpers will know that I appreciate the work they are doing. They are filling in for me quite well as I am mostly out-of-service.

In particular... thank you RedCoat for these "Tidying up some blasts from the past" solutions of old mysteries... and you VHS07, and others who deserve to be applauded.

With gratitude,
Observer2019
