    Hi Kapral and welcome to the forum,

    This is the badge of the pre-war Polish paramilitary organization L.O.P.P. (Liga Obrony Powietrznej i Przeciwgazowej = Air Defense and Anti-Gas League). They were also made with blue enameled swastika arms. It measures 20mm x 20mm.

    The obverse details look good although it would be helpful to see a picture of the reverse. Iím inclined to say itís genuine as I donít believe this badge has yet fallen victim to counterfeiters.

    Regards,
    Tony

    There were white and green-enameled ones too. This one seems to be 'brown', ie. III class instructor's badge.
