    The rune is exactly 2,5 cm:s in length (the prongs NOT included). Doesnt look like a standard piece. The backpart is govered with thin coat of some brownish residue.

    Found a propable match, it seems Latvian SS volonteers made their metal SS runes locally. Mystery solved or... Sure would fit for the area this one was found.

    Some of the eastern volunteers made them at trench lines. Most widely seen on the Latvian wolunteer tunics. I have also 15 Div d SS, handmade swastika
