    1"x 1" Bronze or Pewter. Pin or Badge. WWII. The Post Card was the only clue to this Mystery Pin. It was on a German Museum website about The Bloody Bucket, 28ID. Its Heavy for a little pin. Was not able to find any other pictures about a Keystone Caduceus Pin.

      It is a WW1 ERA Pennsylvania "Keystone" collar insignia. This type was worn by a medical branch soldier.

      And the fun part is, this ancient symbol is not even medical-related. The non-winged single-serpent is. Early 1900s medical got it confused, and it lasted ever since in America.
      The one we see actually means Commerce. LOL.
