If a pin has a screw-back (some marked BIRKS) and visible horizontal lines in the red enamel, then it is wartime.

Here is the private purchase wartime pin acquired by Sgt. Charles Mann, 4-3.
Marked BIRKS STERLING.

The pin on ebay is junk; just a common association pin.
Mike's example looks promising but I can't tell in there are lines in the enamel.
