The first Feast Badge. Top of badge is a knight's helmet with Omaha 1895 below. The medallion says Feast of Mondamin at the top, with Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben below. The center contains cornstalks.

Quote from The Ak-sar-ben Story by Arvid Nelson:

Five-thousand beautiful badges symbolizing Ak-Sar-Ben were put on sale at fifty cents each to the general public as souvenirs of the Feast of Mondamin. The souvenirs were sent to surrounding areas and served as an effective advertisement for Omaha.
