Hi guys
please I need your opinions on this badge.
Is it a WWII original one?
Many thanks
Marco

Lacking the royal crown, it may be even postwar, or not?

I meant to say that this type of badge, lacking the crown, is very hard to date as it was used in both Regia Marina and Marina Militare.

Hi Marco
imho your badge is OK not postwar; unfortunately only the back side
with pin and catch give the just opinion about; this badge was used and produced postwar.
