    Looks like a SW (American) Indian thing to me.

    I have never seen or heard of this one before? I would tend to agree with Bob that it looks American Indian?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Here comes my "two bits" worth........ the swastika symbol we recognize has been used in soooo many ancient & modern cultures ( world-wide) it's not at all a reach that the medal pictured is indeed an American Indian creation-for what??? who knows!!! Hope I help'd Thanks for Reading.

    The above comments are true, for the "good luck" swastika depicted here
    is clockwise in orientation, The Third Reich version is counter-clockwise.

    A souvenir of the American Southwest is more in keeping..........
