WORLD WAR ONE ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL HONOR EMPLOYEE AWARD PIN – DATED 1918:  Featuring the Ordnance Department insignia, this Rock Island Arsenal “HONOR EMPLOYEE” award lapel pin was issued by the authority of the arsenal’s commanding officer, Colonel L.T. Hillman on October 15, 1918.  The pin is complete with both suspension rings intact.  The finish shows some wear, indicating that it was actually worn, and probably on a daily basis by the honoree.  This may very well be a unique, one of a kind item, or if awarded to more than one employee, the pins are certainly rare with a very low survival rate.  (0110)  $100
