It appears to have Hematite stones, (Blood stone). Could be from any time period.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
Yup i agree with Ralph, before the third reich the swastika was regarded as a good luck symbol by many!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
For me without any doubt a period pendant. I have seen very similar ones and adverts from the 30ies for this items. Pendant, rings, what ever you want - i myself have 2 rings in this style.
This stones are usual marcasite.
Nice one for me!
Here still a period (1937) advert for swastika/marcasite jewelry:

Similar pieces still being produced and worn today in the Indian sub continent
Do you think, the pendant shown above is a german fabrication? I have never seen something like that and I am not not sure about the way it was made neither....
Yes, i think so. "800" is a typical period german contentmark for such small silver jewelry.
And the whole appearance of the item, including using this kind of stones, is also typical.
I collect usually only rings from this period, sometimes a little other small jewelry from this time,
and i have seen a lot of this stuff.
I would bet this pendant was period made (pre 45) in germany.
And here a link to an other very similar ring in moment for selling - again common german jewelry from this times:
My 10 pence worth - normally 'lucky charm' swastikas are at a 90 degree angle and 'Nazi' swastikas are at a 45 degree angle (if you understand what I mean!). However, I'm not an expert by any means.
