Limited Edition WWI era Pins on sale NOW!

We are so proud of our collection here at the Richmond Museum of History that we decided to clone some of it and sell it to you! The originals of these pins have been in our collection since the 1980’s and they’re just too fun to keep to ourselves. So we reproduced them and are selling them for the very low price of only $6! We hope to include more reproduction merchandise from our collection in the future.

When you visit the Richmond Museum of History, make sure to pick up a set and show you support for fair labor practices, women’s rights and the Red Cross! Want to buy but can’t make it to the Museum? Give us a call at 510-235-7387 or email melinda@richmondmuseum.org and we will ship it for a modest shipping and handling fee. Thanks for your support!
