    It is a put together fantasy piece. Sorry. You would have been better to post pictures before grabbing it.

    Not a fantasy piece.

    In the earliest stage for the SA gorgets like this were made, when not
    an official gorget was yet introduced, as also various other patterns were
    in use.
    Units that did wear such variation gorgets were ordered to purchase the
    official version after when it was announced September 18, 1933.

    From an old cataloque (credit Zirnsak):

    Very interesting! I've never seen a gorget like this myself, ever!

    From another cataloque, see marked text and see also the text at the lower
    part of the drawings:

    Note the word "Hakenkreuz" (swastika) is specifically being mentioned!

    This and other information is deeply covered in my book about gorgets
    with 704 pages (for many a pity as it is dealt with German text).

    This and other stuff is waiting for an eventual English version
    of the book, but pitily the German publisher shows hardly any
    interest at the moment and does not yet keep his promisses!

    You see the swastika was surely used, but one can not tell if this symbol was upon the gorget
    since the early 1930's or if this was done later, but my guess is it is done many years ago, as
    I do not see any "hanky-panky" with the nuts.
    The swastika with your gorget obviously is attached to the back of the large symbol-plate. It
    should fit the vaulting of the inner oval. I hope not it is being glued!
