    I agree that this is a Wolfsangel symbol.
    Don't know what it is for, but it has definitely nothing to do with the Stahlhelmbund. Please note that the "NSD" on the Stahlhelm badge is just half of the full abbreviation "N.S.D.F.St.B" = Nationalsozialistischer Deutscher Frontkämpfer-Bund "Stahlhelm" [i.e. "National Socialist German Frontfighters' League 'Stahlhelm'" and would be meaningless on its own, so it has to stand for something different.

    (Oh, and by the way: 8.4. is not 4th August, but 8th April.)

    An interesting little "event" pin and like most, I do not think that it has the slightest connection with the SS. I will check with the Tieste catalogues, however I suspect that the NSV is for NS Volksfuersorge - peoples "aid" or peoples "welfare". This strange emblem often appears on event pins in various forms and permutations and at times, there is a strong BDM link. Only guessing, however possibly an aid or welfare awareness day pin.

    Regards,

    You're totally right: It's "NSV" not "NSD"; I really should have looked closer at the letters. Right, "NSV" was the Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt [= National Socialist People's Welfare]

    By the way, Google-ing the date "8.4.1934 NSV", I came up with another one of these tinnies:
