    I got these two pins at one booth at this weekend's SERTOMA show. The 3 star one has a medical caduecues. I am guessing the family had 3 sons that were either doctors or were in the medical corps. The white pin is celluloid, I had not seen one in that material before.

      The medical one appears to be WW1 era.

      The bottom is WW2 era-- I have one but the face is rougher than yours.

      Nice finds!

      Thanks, scottvez. Any idea what it's worth?

      I'd say $30- $45 for the medical. It is desirable due to the 3 stars-- most that I see are only one star.

      The WW2 one probably tops out at $15.

      The bakelite or plastic pin (the one on the right) is one of a series of the same pin but includes in the title (that I know of) Husband, Brother, and Sweetheart.
