We have seen old advertisements offering these pins with your name on them. To get one you would send in your name, with a payment, or maybe as a premium with advertising box tops. This may also have been a souvenir item made on site, such as at an amusement park, Fair, boardwalk, or some other popular tourist location.
The pin measures about 1-3/8'' x 1-3/8''. It appears to be in excellent condition as pictured.
