Rare Badge?

Hit the dirt by myself today, as my hunting buddy Gerry was under the weather. I detected an old spot we've hit many times. I got a few wheats, 3 injuns (1901, 1902 & a no date) along with a 1919 merc. My best find of the day, which I was ecstatic to pull, is a Salvation Army badge. If I didn't go and hit the goddamn thing with my shovel, it would've been in pristine condition. You can see on the right side in the middle where I clipped it Headbang Anywho...

I cannot find anything even remotely similar to mine online. I did find one or two other Salvo badges, but they appear later than my piece. I'm guessing that it has to be from at least the teens or 20's, as that's the age of the older coins I've gotten from this spot. Any guesses?

The post-it notes are for size. Same height as regular post-it notes.

Great finds Joe.  That badge is sweet.  Just slow down with the shovel man.

cool badge, it would be hard not to hit it when most of the stuff we dig up is coin or pull tab size. Still a good find. Was the pin still intact on the back?
