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.
