Is there some sort of "Manhattan Project Society" where people got the lapel pins (one would think that they weren't really advertising it during the war...)

Funny you say that my grandmother worked there, all she knew is that she had to watch some dials and make sure things didnt over heat.

I wouldn't sell a family item like that (if it is hers), that's some serious history

Um, that's not silver, and if you've had it near your lap, I hope you don't want any more kids!

this pin?

Yes that is the one. There are two models, lead which was given to people with under one year service, and silver for people with over a year.

I don't know what it's worth, but if it were from my Grandparent, I would consider contacting museums connected with the Manhattan project and see if they would like to have it on permanant loan for display.
