    Not specifically for WW1 veterans, although many of them would have worn it:

    It's a Nazi-era lapel pin for members of the Kyffhäuserbund, a nationwide veterans' association.

    The model that came before this had a field in the national colors of black, white and red instead of the red field with the Swastika.

    The post-war version has a white field with a stylized Iron Cross in the same place and the year "1786" flanking the memorial.

    It looks good to me.

    Thanks HP could you say what year this pin would have been produced. Also it has 14 stamped on the rear any ideas as to its meaning.

    As far as I know, this design was used from 1935 to 1938. Don't know about the meaning of the "14".
