My research revealed that the last report from this publisher was in 1914--the year that Mother's Day was formally announced and made legal by President Wilson. I think that is quite interesting, don't you. Here is the link where I found that info.
And another Note:
"Finally the holiday was declared officially by states beginning in 1912, and in 1914 the President, Woodrow Wilson, declared the first national Mother's Day."
Please note that this was a BLACK Church Publisher...affiliated with the BLACK Baptists.
So, this pin is from 1914-- or EARLIER--It could be from 1912-1914!
So this is a super cross-over collectible item, and could be quite rare...I know, I grew up with antique dealer parents, and I have been dealing stuff my entire life, and I haven't seen a lot of these.
I attempted to photograph the mark in the above picture.
I am selling my collection of buttons...look at my auctions for neat, interesting & unusual ones...
