    I have seen these referred to as Political Edelweiss amongst other things. What was it's real purpose? I suppose this one is a fake. I don't like the look of the back.
    Thank you for your help.

    Is it indeed a political version of the Edelweiss?

    The badge was also worn by NSKK units from Hochland on their sturzhelm and schiffen.

    Stug,

    it looks as a good Max Kremhelmer from Munich. Why the dark color, I don't know.
    It should have a silvered surface for the leaves of the flower originally.
    As Stickgrenade and Bob say it was worn with the SA kepi from Hochland and used
    with the SA field-cap. The same form was also worn within the NSKK field-cap, kepi
    and motor-helmet.
