New York associations Jewish or other #general


I have been on the computer for days trying to find out what the acronyms
on my great or grgrgrandfathers pin stand for. The pin has two american
flags and the statue of liberty on it.The initials are E.N.Y.L No489 or
439 (hard to read) I.D.B.A or I.O.B.A (once again hard to read).The other
pin or cuff link is the shape of a coat of arms.The top two letters are
F C. Below them is the letter B.Does anyone know what either pins stand

Thanks,Marcy Portney
