A quite interesting item from a until recently unknown Swedish nazi movement called Förbundet det nya Sverige. The pin was owned by Albert Nelson from Värmland, he was Krigsfiskal (War Fiscal) at the regiment of Värmland.
The pin and some other of Albert Nelsons stuff was discovered in the same time. The pin is only known in 2 or 3 existing pieces. Bellow a picture of Albert Nelson in uniform and also a picture on the actual pin from Nelson himself. The pin is marked "Sporrong & Co. Stockholm" and uses a round lapel pin.
Quote from the book Nazismen i Sverige by Holger Carlsson on page 92:
"War Fiscal Nelsons bit strange organisation with a black eagle on yellow background as emblem. all other Swedish movements have used the Wreath/wasakärve or the swastika in some shape as emblem."
The pin is from a very small party formed 1940 in Karlstad, Värmland. "Förbundet det nya Sverige" NOT to confuse with "Riksförbundet det nya Sverige" that was formed in Uppsala 1930. More sources below in Swedish from the book "Fem år med Kreuger" by J.A Wallenberg.

Mr. Nelson seem to be insane.
Here is a very interesting ?sympathy? swastika stickpin. Made from 18k gold with cut diamonds (I haven't personally checked about the diamonds, its second hand information from the previous owner).
The swastika is reversed though, thats a bit odd.
The goldsmith stamps tell us: Kattfot (certified gold), makers code "RA" and gold content 750 for 18k.
According to SWEDAC the makers details is following:
400 10 Göteborg
Operated between 1920-1934

FYI, here is the other known pin from Förbundet det nya Sverige. Different lapel pin. Also made by Sporrong. Poorer quality and slightly different design on the flag. Its most likely painted and then coated with transparent enamel. Mine is black and yellow enamel. This one is not in my collection.
Both from the same source.
Again, sorry for bad photos.
