    It's a badge for Kaiser Karl. These were the Austrian version of the later WW2 German tinnies. They are referred to as kappenabzeichen and there were thousands of different versions produced. There is also a cluster of pressed and dried edelweiss flowers.

    Thank you. Yes, I have posted often on that forum and learned a lot of great information. The forum seems to be down now....I don't know why.

    I have also seen your post with your fantastic collection of found relics. Very impressive.
