    Default Hungarian SS button?

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone can shed a light on this small button? My grandparents brought it back from my great-grandparent's house in Hungary on their last trip there - I know that my great grandfather was a member of the Hungarian SS, but I can't find much information on those uniforms, let alone buttons!

    I don't even know if this button has anything to do with the military, but I thought someone here might know. The stamping on the back of the button says "M.S.S." - any ideas? Thanks!

    Certainly not SS related.

    It maybe a Hungarian Army button, but that is right outside my collecting interests and experience.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This looks like Czech to me.

    Hi,
    I fully agree with Dean, this button is not Hungarian but for the Czech Army.
    Cheers

    Crossed swords is usually Czech!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I can confirm; Czech.
    The Hungarian SS wore German uniforms:
