    My first clue would be the clutch clasps......doubt they were available in 1923!

    Right: These "butterfly"/clutch fasteners were not used on any German pre-1945 insigne, badge, award or decoration of any kind.

    Of U.S. origin, this type of fastener was patented in 1942 and may be found on U.S. military badges/insignia of the WW2 period, but never German ones.

    [By the way, this is a very poor, cast fake of the Allgemeines Gau-Ehrenzeichen instituted in (if memory serves) 1933. Apart from everything else that is wrong with this one, originals have black enamel on the front.]

    Some more info on the subject of clutch fasteners may be found here: Dating Metallic Insignia: Clutch Fasteners
