    Default nazi/italian freindship badge?

    Hi guys I donít know if Iíve posted this in the correct place.
    This is a badge that i got with some other original items so I have no reason to think it is fake.
    It seems to be a nazi/Italy friendship badge and at first glance the pin attachment might look fake ,but it looks like it was made in Milan by a someone called NOSNHOPS. I don,t know what the initials on the front stand for and I take it sanremo is a place.
    What is the coat of arms
    Has anyone else got one of these
    Any other input is always appreciated
    Thanks

    If you turn it right side up, it looks like it was made by "S. Johnson in Milan"...nice little pin.

    Maker is S. Johnson which seems a strange name for a maker of badges based in Milan. I can't comment on it's originality.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Hi, can not say if its original, but San Remo is an Italian coastal city with about 58000 inhabitants.
    Cheers.

    In the 1800s, a lot of British people settled in Italy... I guess it just goes to show you how powerful and wide reaching the Royal navy was back then. In fact, a lot of Italian cities (Bologna, Genoa and Milan) adopted the St. Georges cross flag. I heard that this was done as a means of telling the British navy that they were friendly... Aka, dont blow us out of the water! Also, my favorite soccer team AC Milan was formed in 1899 by two British blokes named Edwards and Kilpin.
