This is a patriotic, home front insignia. Bullion is a first for me.

Many dealers, who have no clue, yet want to make a sale, ID them as staff of the various branches at the White House, or first variation of "something something".  They know most collectors don't know, either.

They exist in different color backgrounds, and embroidered on wool.
