This is a wonderful advertising/memorabilia piece from almost 100 years ago. In 1926 the National Life and Accident Insurance Co., Inc. was celebrating its Silver Jubilee – 25 years of “shielding” its customers, as the blue enameled medallion states. This particular ribbon was issued to insurance agent K. C. Shepherd from Beaumont, TX. The name badge, ribbon and medallion measure 4 5/8” in length. The ribbon is in excellent condition with very readable print on it. The medallion has a little wear but is still easy to read the celebratory advertising message; the back reads Bastion Bros. Co., Rochester, NY with a shield in middle. The name badge has yellowed and shows wear, but I think Agent Shepherd must have proudly worn that daily for the year of celebration!
This would be a wonderful addition to your advertising or memorabilia collection. Please contact us if you have any questions.
