    I think it is a 'factory protection' cap badge.

    Thanks Walkwolf. Would that mean a private security company?

    It is for the 'Werkschutz' or Factory Protection Service.
    Not sure if it was a private or national group.

    Werkschutz/Werksicherheitsdienst (factory protection/factory security service) personnel were employed by the company whose security they provided.

    The uniforms and insignia for WS/WSD personnel working for companies belonging to the Reichsgruppe Industrie (RGr. I) were standardized (and included the pictured cap eagle), while other companies used a wide variety of individual uniforms and insignia.

    Here is the cap eagle in wear by a factory security guard:

    The same cap eagle, by the way, was also worn by Werkfeuerwehr (factory firefighting service) personnel.

    Thanks for the detailed info HPL2008! It was much needed. I have not been able to find much on the web about this and not even a picture of the reverse of this pin. VG, Lee
