    It is not a topic I would think is faked. The date is interesting as it is right after the invasion of Poland. It is likely something from the German American Bund or a similar organization

    Not seen this one before?

    I don't even know if the Kyffhäuserbund had a branch in the USA?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, Ade; it did. Philadelphia was actually the seat of the U.S. branch's headquarters. After the outbreak of war, the organization was closely monitored by the FBI, and soon after the U.S.A.'s entry into the war, it disbanded.

    Thanks for the history lesson--I had no idea that the Kyffhäuserbund existed in the US. Interesting to note that they did not adopt the Reichskriegerbund name, even after the Kyffhäuserbund was subsumed by that organisation.

    A nice piece! It appears to have been made to use and wear as a Watch fob.

    You could find the Reichskriegerbund also in Chile, Argentinien, Brasilien and Switzerland.

    Attached I can show a picture from Sao Paulo 1937. Navycrew should be from SMS Schleswig-Holstein or SMS Schlesien
