    Exclamation Need Help Identify This Eagle Pin/Badge Marked D.E.F.B.

    Hi, all. A friend of mine recently picked up this piece at a show and was unsure what it was or represented. I did a little research myself but haven't been able to identify it either. Any help or info would be great!

    Thanks,

    I cannot identify it with 100% certainty; but I think I have found the answer:
    There was a D.E.F.B. or Deutsch-Evangelischer Frauenbund (German-Protestant Women's League) founded in 1899. (It's still in existence, but has changed its name into DEF or Deutscher Evangelischer Frauenbund [German Protestant Women's League] in 1969)
    Since the central cross emblem on this pin would imply it to be for some type of Christian organization, and since I cannot find another meaning for D.E.F.B. that makes sense in this context, I am quite confident that this is the right D.E.F.B.

    See here for a (German-language) article on the D.E.F.B.'s history:
