ITEM UP FOR BIDS: CIRCA BELIEVED TO BE 1950
GOLD TONE METAL AND WHITE ENAMEL SCREW BACK PIN READS "THE MACCABEES" AND HAS AN OPEN FLAP TENT IN CENTER OF PIN. PIN MEASURES 1/2" IN DIAMETER. MADE BY NEWARK EMBLEM CO. NEWARK, N.J. AND IS STAMPED ON PIN BACK POST NUT. IN 1941 THE GROUP HAD GAINED CONTROL OF A LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY AND WAS GHANGING FROM A FRATERNAL ORGNIAZION TO A COMPANY, I BELIEVE THIS PIN IS PRE 1941.
INFO FROM WIKIPEDIA; Knights of the Maccabees was a fraternal organization formed in 1878 in London, Ontario, Canada. A related but separate organization, "Maccabees of the World", was also established, the two merging under the title "The Knights of the Maccabees of the World" (KOTMOTW), later shortened to the Maccabees in 1914.
Most active in the U.S. state of Michigan, the group's fraternal aspects took a backseat to providing low-cost insurance to members. In the society's early years it also provided other final-expense related benefits such as society cemeteries.
By 1920 the ladies' auxiliary, Ladies of the Maccabees, alone claimed more than 200,000 members.
In 1926 they established their headquarters at the Maccabees Building in downtown Detroit, Michigan. In 1960 the Maccabees relocated to a new building in Southfield, Michigan - a suburb of Detroit. In 1986 they built new 251,000-square-foot office building, once again in Southfield.
In 1941 the group gained control of the Michigan Union Life Association, furthering its transformation from a benefit society into a modern, legal-reserve insurance company.
In 1962 the group changed its name again, this time to the Maccabees Mutual Life Insurance Company.
In the 1990s the organization was demutualized and sold to the Royal Insurance Group and operated under the name Royal Maccabees Life Insurance Company.
In 1999 Royal Maccabees was sold by its parent company, Royal & SunAlliance Financial Services, to Swiss Re. Swiss Re merged it into its subsidiary, Reassure America Life Insurance Company.
