Palestine/Yishuv: named pin of the WIZO "Institution for Mother and Child Care" in Tel-Aviv, circa. 1920's-30's; not maker-marked; size: 27.5mm; weight: 6.6g. The Institution was founded in 1927, but was ill-starred in the scandal of the abducted children of Yemenite immigrants (1948-54) when it turned out that the institute served as a covert adoption facility for those children. Estimated dating based on design & pin mechanism on back.
