Isn't that the cockade for the peaked cap of the Marine-SA?
well done HPL.
They are also found on the front of the 1st model SA Wehrmannschaft hat.

Didier, you also got your answer on WAF. It was also worn by
SA-Wehrmannschaft with their typical cap. Since May 1938 this
cockade was indeed worn within the wreath for the naval-SA.
This cockade was further worn by SA at Hitlers headquarters
and by "SA-Führer im Operationsgebiet", when wearing field-grey.
Hitlers SA-adjutant Wilhelm Brückner did wear this cockade for
example at the Westwell, during a visit in spring 1939.
This cockade was with three occasions covered in volume 3 from
the headgear-series, where also a photo from Brückner is shown.
The RZM number at the reverse is 230 and not as 280! M5/230
