Question Does Anyone Know Anything About Canadian War Veteran Pins?

I was helping my parents clean out some of the old sheds today on the farm. My mum told to keep anything that I thought was cool, but I didn't think I'd find anything other than the thousands of old china teacups. While cleaning off one shelve I found a box of Paris Garters, or what I was Paris Garters anyway. But when I picked the box up the contents rattled around more than a pair of Garters would have. I opened the box and found about six war veteran pins inside. I have absolutely no idea what they are for, or whose they belonged to. (I'm sure it's one of my ancestors, there was more Canadain forces stuff around the farm) I was hoping someone could possibly shed some light on what they are for, and possibly how old they are. The first three are golden maple leafs with the crown and Canada on it. Two are small and the other is larger. The other two are copper and say 2.DB-EO CANADA and on the back they say Roden Bros 1917. I can post pictures of them later if need be. Thanks in advance!

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

I do believe you have real collector items. Take some good pics and google the Canadian Antiques Road Show. You might be able to get an evaluation. You need a real evaluation, not a low ball offer some collector will offer. There are also web sites that will evaluate. There may be a fee but maybe not. What about the big museum in Ottawa? They may be interested and may provide an evaluation.
