    The "star" is actually an Edleweiss flower. This is for a Political cap. Worn by the SA Gruppe Hochland in Alpine regions etc. A search on the forum for Hochland Edleweiss will provide you with more info and images.

    The eagle is a stick pin for wear on civilian clothes. Not SS.

    I have doubts about the originality on the pics shown so far. As ever, the back will tell the full story.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Cheers mate, Under the Jewellers Loop the small Eagle has a long blob of solder on reverse side ( long being subjective of course, meaning its not a circular "blob", it's also pitted,... with the rest of the rear surface scratched and mottled, it sure looks old
