This remarkable old piece, honoring the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, is made of celluloid. It is for the Past Grand Noble of the Grand Assembly o Walla Walla in 1908. The detailed celluloid piece has an obelisk in the center and reads; Oddfellows Home Monument Unveiled June 1908 - Walla Walla. Below that is the IOOF and All Seeing Eye, the Three Link Emblem for friendship, love and truth, a circle with a tent like symbol which maybe an encampment variation and a circle with symbols representing the Rebekah Lodge. The original ribbon attaches the celluloid piece to the badge which has a pin attached to the back of it. Stamped into the back of the metal is; Whitehead & Hoag Co. of Newark N.J..
The celluloid portion measures about 2 ½” by 1 9/16”, the pin portion measures about 2” wide by 1 1/8” and the overall length is about 5”. It is in very good condition with minimal wear. There is a slight amount of fading and soiling to the ribbon with a tiny tear to the top right edge of the ribbon.
