    Hi all, I'm just looking for a little bit of information here about this thing. It's one of those smalls that seems to pop up in a household without anyone knowing where it came from.

    My guess is that it's some sort of button stud or cufflink, but I'm not sure. Also, I have no idea what the "Best Ever Super Secret Service Club" is. Some snarky political joke, maybe?

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated!

      Hello,
      there are some clues, in the late 1930s Warner Brothers motion pictures was promoting "Smashing the Money Ring" , in connection they stated a Junior Secret Service Club, interestingly Ronald Regan was commander as quoted from "Ronald Reagan in Hollywood: movies and politics". Google Ronald Reagan in Hollywood + Super Secret Service Club to read the actual quote in the book.
      Anyway, the badge looks like it was defiantly a premium from the late 30's, something that was given away to promote a Movie or a product. Hope this helps.

      Wow, I had no idea! That's awesome. Thank you so much for all of that information. Now we're all scratching our heads wondering where in the world it came from. =p
