    I found this old pin I believe that it may be Odd Fellows it has the three rings symbol that the odd fellows use. Any idea or what the significance of the donkey is? Could it be political (Democrat) ?

      Hello..The Odd Fellows have roots going back to the 1700s..they are a fraternal order and would at times use the donkey as head masks and wear them, like say a moose lodge member wearing the moose horned hat..Odd Fellows are actually non-political in their creed and bi-partisan.
      The rings are called the 'Three Link's..Faith, Love and Peace I believe.
      Hope this helps!!

      Thomas.
