    I think it is a serviec dress collar badge from around the fifties for the Dutch Korps Commando Troepen. During WWII the lion with "Nederland" scroll was worn. See:

    It might be a wee bit more than that, I don't think they are that common and s/f is very collectable.

    Hi David,
    It is actualy a shoulder badge (hoi Luc!). In the Netherlands a set would sell for around 50 euros, so 15 USD for a single badge is a bargain.
