    It's a war helper's badge, Kriegshilfsabzeichen. Don't know if it's authentic or not. Some have been posted before.

    Dean and Green - it's a R.A.D. 'Weibliche Jugend' badge. Young women
    of the National Labour Service wore these - likely working the fields,
    preparing food, milking cows and possibly munitions plants.

    Mine came as a group from the same person with
    two other medals.........

    The hardware is different on your example Steve. Must have been a few makers of this badge

    Yes, and like Dean's, mine is completely unmarked. I've seen
    a few of these for sale at around $45.........
