Truth, justice, patriotism, and courage were represented by the four stars on the Shield’s extraordinary uniform, his true identity, Joe Higgins, was only known by FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. MLJ Magazines launched the Shield G-Man Club in Pep Comics #15. It offered a red, white and blue badge and membership card in exchange for a 2¢ stamp.

The Shield G-Man Club ran from 1941-1948 and had a few different premiums.

The most iconic is the pin back button.

There was also a membership card. However, when the Shield G-Man Club became the Archie Club in 1948 members were encouraged to turn in their G-Man membership card to get a free Archie Club membership card.

In 2018 the club began again as an unofficial gathering of patriots whose blood ran Red, White, and Blue!

It all started here…

So what did you get for your 2¢ stamp

You got a beautiful pinback button.

Then there was the Membership ID Card, not all of them were actually signed by Joe Higgins, note the different signatures. Possibly signed for Joe by Betty or Dusty?

It all came to an end when Archie Andrews took over the club and made it in his own image. Pep Comics #66 carried the message that the club would be known as the Archie Club. Members were requested to send in their membership cards in exchange for which they were to receive a new Archie Club button free of charge, new members could join for 10¢.

 

and Archie had his own collectors pin.
