    I believe these badges to be from the 20s and 30s one is national indian war veterans and the other is united indian war veterans. It is my understanding that members of the National indian war veterans left and started the United indian war veterans.

    I believe these to be fairly rare and can find few examples online. I have the most trouble locating information for the United indian war veterans and the related badge which bears the name of general George crook which I believe is the president or namesake of the Los Angeles chapter. I assume the sabers were relics from the original owners military uniform

    It's my hope that I will be adding the ladies auxiliary badge and a set from the 1932 convention to this set in the coming days.

    Anyone know more about these badges or how rare they are? I didn't pay a fortune but they weren't free.

      GREAT badges!

      Anything Indian War related is hard to find, including veteran group pieces. The Army was very small in the post- Civil War through the Spanish American War, so available era items and veteran pieces are scarce.

      You seem familiar with the history of these badges. Perhaps you would be interested to know that they belonged to George webb. I now have his wife badge as well.

      George webb was apparently instrumental in the reorganization on the niwv after membership had declined in the early 20th century.

      I'll be posting the other badges and ribbons shortly
