I'm sure that would work, but nearly any brass would work, too, I think. All brass tends to anneal to a very soft state when done properly.
260 is soft already before annealing. Annealing 260 brass will make it useless for structural applications, like blades.
But it will work harden when you press the badge, so I think it is a good choice. You could also anneal some standard 260 brass yourself. It just takes a propane torch.
Interesting project....If you make GE badges, I'll likely be interested in those.
