years back i purchased a ww2 italian helmet with a large brass insignia on front. just yesterday i identified the insignia as being the U.S. national guard insignia. it's a large one approx. 2"x2". at first glance it looks facist because of the spread wing eagle with two bundles of sticks (facia). has anyone else ever run into something like this, and does any one know if it has any signifigance?
thank you--general disaster
