Wow! There really IS "something new under the sun!" That this piece has Nazi roots seems too obvious to state, given the swastika base to the design, and the presence of oak leaves indicates longevity, strength and perhaps a military attachment -- not to say 'royal!' But the central crest is unfamiliar to me, so I must wait till someone with heraldry experience shows up on this thread!

A very attractive piece, nonetheless! Many thanks for sharing it with us,

Br. James

I’m a novice and can’t be of any help but just wanted to say that is a really nice looking piece you got!

The centre is the heraldic shield of the Prussian province of Brandenburg .

Hope this is of some help .

Great piece Chris.

Confusing though that a goldsmith would use a yellow metal rather than real Gold.

Apart from that it looks entirely period.

Hi Stan
Yes but still a totally odd piece. I was thinking we’re others made with different shield but with no further information it’s very difficult to put a price on it and what it stands for.
But the design is loverly
I am not sure but would probably date it 1932-35 ?

I would think that it's quite difficult to put a value on a single piece until we understand whether this is an example of a series of badges that were produced with different shields on the obverse, or if this is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind piece. Having never seen another like this one over all the decades since the end of WWII, one does get the idea that this is indeed a unique piece...but of course we still need to understand what this badge represented.
