    This is an extremely rare badge. Less than 300 were ever made. It was designed and sent to the Republican Airforce (Mussolini's Republic of Salo after the surrender of the Royal Italian Armed Forces on 8 September 1943) Secretary of Defense in October 1944. It was approved on 17 November 1944 and issue began. It became obsolete as of 1 May 1945. The wreath and upraised Roman sword (called a "gladius") are the official collar emblems of the RSI Armed forces.
