Default Boston made Swastika Badge - D

Does anybody know what this badge is? The maker on the back reads: " u.L.OREAR - Boston". The first initial maybe a miss strike and not be a "u".

This is a new one on me! The German-American Bund used the letters "OD" to indicate their uniformed 'order service,' but that's as close to this piece as I can come! I look forward to the replies of our colleagues and friends here.

don't forget that the swastika was a symbol for good luck in north america, from the end of the 19th century to the early 1920s. judging by the age on the patina, this one is most likely such a piece.
