    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    I have no idea what this insignia is for, but I do like the look of it very much.

    Your Englsih is fine!

    Yeah, I am liking that too. The mount is curious and looked like Jewelry till I saw the back of it. Pretty heavy mount that must have gone on something and looks Teutonic in nature.

    Retaining bolt is curved? could be an automobile grill mount?

    Value is subjective, but if I saw that I would move I think.

    Never seen it before but it seems to be some private made badge. As You said Your grandfather lived in Romania, there were many German nationalist groups all over the Eastern Europe in 1930-40-ies. Maybe this badge was made by one of them?

    I'm realy not an expert but I know for sure it is not fake, becouse I have about 20 nazi idems from him, and all of them he had in his possesion before 1947 when he came to Romania. The old man didn't talk much about his before war - war status , I know from my grandmother (she was 100% romanian) that he was some kind of officer in the war and he came to Romania after the war to emigrate from Constanta (black sea port) in Australia but from logistic problems he staid here meet her marryed her had one daugheter (my mother) ...............so if it is fake is an before 1947 Fake

    Hi Teo

    Sorry mate, bad wording on my part, when I said "fake" I meant it in its widest context as in "not generally known/recognised", I did not mean to infer that it was a fake, as in a "made up" badge.

    BTW, am I correct in assuming that the measuring triangle that it is against is marked in centimetres? If so, I am starting to think that, that would put the badge at about the right size to be some sort of "organisational/membership" lapel badge.

    Regards etc
