is this maybe an immigration or quarantine badge?

Postby vintagegamer » 27 Mar 2012, 20:51

Hello all,

One of my family members has this from one of our ancestors, and I'm trying to narrow down exactly what it is. It is suspected that it is an ID badge from an employer, but I'm wondering if might be more than that. I could be wrong though- it may be nothing more than the employer badge.

Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated. The person who was supposedly the prior owner came to America from Italy in 1912.
