This badge would have been awarded to attendees of the National Association of Master Bakers (NAMB) annual dinner and who contributed generously to the National Association of Master Bakers, Confectioners & Caterers Benevolent Fund. The NAMB was founded in 1887 and the issue of this badge would have coincided with their centenary celebrations. The NAMB changed their name to the Craft Bakers Association in 2013.
