Detroit- Where Life is Worth Living. Celluloid Oval Open Pin Badge

The Detroit Convention and Tourist Bureau used the phrase "Detroit-Where Life is Worth Living" as the city's unofficial motto. It appears in the DCTB brochure as early as 1915. The motto comes from the first line of Edgar A. Guests' poem "In Detroit" (1913). The button features the silhouette of the Detroit skyline as seen from the Detroit River. This celluloid oval open pin badge was produced by Bastian Brothers Company of Rochester, NY.


This 5/8" celluloid button has L.O.T.M. written above a globe with a beehive on it. Under the hive are 5 intertwined rings with the letters T F L S P within them. On the left of the hive, a ribbon says Ad Astra. To the right, a ribbon says Peraspera.

The back paper is from Whitehead & Hoag 1896.

I'm thinking this is from some type of fraternal organization, but I can't seem to track down which one. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

In the center of the globe, it says: Eat The World Food RICE.

Celluloid. Gold outer ring with colorful photographic heads of Henry Hudson and Robert Fulton above three drawings of ships in the Hudson River. Dates Sept. 25 to Oct. 9 are written below. 


Back paper says J. Boller, Novelties. Carnival Goods. Has a stamp with a 19 next to it. Then Confetti. 10 Barclay St., new York.

My mother saved this button but I never learned its history. Is it possibly a Welcome Home for the WWI vets? On the back a paper insert says - Manufactured by St Louis Button Co, St Louis, Mo, Pat  Aug 8, '99. Can anyone add to the history?

Found in garfield, kentucky
