    Hello, I'm asking a question that I think I already know the answer to. Is this small swastika Third Reich or earlier possibly English from a time when the symbol had nothing to do with Germany? If it isn't German has anyone got any ideas?[ATTACH=CONFIG]936002

    It could be anything. If it has anything to do with 3rd reich my guess is that could be something from Wintershilfswerk?

    It certainly isn't an officially sanctioned 3rd Reich piece...considering the quality & overall impression I would say we're looking at a vintage good luck charm...perhaps for a child's bracelet...

    I'm thinking American. I've seen other swastika jewellery enamelled almost this same colour before, and it was manufactured in the U.S. circa 1920's-30's and marked "Sterling". I have wondered in the past if there was a native american link due to the turquoise colour of it.

    I agree with Glenn, good luck charm for a baby probably from the 1920's or 30's.

    Thanks all for your opinions. I know it's old because it was found in a collection of early to mid 20th century costume, after some internet research I was pretty certain it wasn't third reich but it's always better to get a second opinion from experts. I find that if I look for stuff like this on the net I never find another one like it ! Thanks again.

    Possible also some of the 20's 30's art deco stuff I have a swaticka adorned ashtray from this period. It was quite popular stuff then in a pre war Nazi period. timothy

    Thanks everyone for your input. I was correct in what I originally thought, I'm getting better at recognising when things arent state 3rd reich.
