    One of my last finds is this swiss medal or badge, which dispays a mother with child, in the back there are marching troops, with swiss flag, rifles on the shoulder, and the trademark swiss helmets. There is a date in roman numbers, I.VIII.1940, which is the swiss national day. The nazi-invasion was expected at any moments in this days, i guess that therefore it is a little belicious... Any opinions on this one are welcome..

    i dont know if i posted it at the right place.. sorry if not.

    I cannot I.D. it, but if all else fails, you might even be able to have it identified by the maker. The firm of Huguenin (now Faude & Huguenin) at Le Locle still exists and still produces medals, pins, trophies etc.: Faude & Huguenin AG - Ihr Partner fr Medaillen, Abzeichen, Plaketten und Mnzen

    Vielen dank, mein freund..
    Cool info you gave me, and nice to know that the factory still exists. I think that itīs an 1.august badge (ist der schweizer nationalferiertag). it might have belonged to my grandfather, and with the mom on it it looks civilian to me. letīs see if i get an answer by the factory..
