    Default Need help identifying this insigna

    I was cleaning out a box of embroidered patches and other items that an friend of my father gave me about 30 years ago. I have identified most of the items, but several remain elusive. This badge measures 2 1/16" high by 1 9/16" wide. The face is embroidered with crossed oak leaves at the bottom. The swastika and the surrounding coged wheel is a very bright gold. The leaves and boarder are more of a brass color. The patch is mounted on a convex tin back with an attachment clasp. The picture of the back is a little fuzzy.

    Thanks for any information you can provide.

    Dan,

    Thanks. I looked through thousands of medals and badges over the last couple of weeks and never ran across and pictures of the badge. I have a couple of more items I would like to get identified. This one is a lapel pin:

    The last one is for the Reichseinheitsverband des Deutschen Gaststättengewerbes (REV), [roughly "Unified National Association of the Catering Trade"].
